Hate is a strong word. And we know that God is a God of love, grace and mercy. So if the Bible tells us that God hates something, we should probably pay attention. Proverbs 6:16 -1 Proverbs 6:19
In fact, King Solomon wrote these verses in a form designed to get our attention. He wrote “There are six things” and then wrote “seven.” This used to be a common way for writers to build suspense and to make sure they had their audience’s attention. The knowledge shared in these verses is incredibly important. If we know what God hates, then we can make sure we avoid these things.
Solomon names seven things that God hates. And out of these seven, he mentions lying twice. He writes that God hates a lying tongue and that God hates a false witness who pours out lies. He hates it so much that Solomon said it twice.
It is important that we work to avoid lying of all kinds. Our lies do nothing for us; they only hurt us. And more importantly, they hurt God.
Dear God, please keep our tongues from lying and let us tell the truth. Please give us the courage and confidence to always be honest. Amen.
