When you go th7 Thingsrough the scriptures you will find things that go in sevens; one of such bothers on the person of God and the passion of God. God is not just a God of love; God is love. God is love suggests that He is good, kind, loving and passionate. The love nature of God shows us that when He doesn’t like something, He does not passionately but when He likes it He does so passionately. God is a God of Love, Mercy, Holiness, Justice, Laws and Principles. So God loves us and He loves us passionately and unconditionally. So to suggest that He loves also means that He can hate; when you like something, also means you can hate. God loves everybody, sinners inclusive but He cannot stand sin.

Our relationship with our biological father is similar to what we have with Christ; he loves the child but might not like the attitude or action. So you must learn to separate the person from the issue; there are issues people indulge in that will make people that love you not to like you again.

God is a God of justice and equal opportunities; so there are seven critical things God does not like:

  1. A Proud Look: when God wants to weight a man He checks out his eyes; He wants to see what’s in your eyes. When there is pride in your eyes it affects the way you see life, when you have lust in your eyes it affects how you see girls and boys. Most of the times the eyes is our problem. Don’t look down on anyone; instead pray that God helps you to see the way He sees. Proud people are never satisfied with what they have and where they are. When there is pride in your eyes you cannot see things and people for what they are worth.
  2. A Lying Tongue: a tongue that does not say the truth; their words are not true. Relationships are destroyed by lies. God will not commit resources into the hands of a liar. It is better to keep quite than to lie. To live by faith doesn’t mean you will be lying. God does not like liars.
  3. Hands that Shed Innocent Blood: nothing must get you to the point where you spill the bloods of another man. The reason David did not build the temple was because he had Uriah’s blood on his hands. When you spill the blood of an innocent there are something’s you are forever disqualified from.
  4. A Heart that Devices Wicked Imagination: God always looks into our hearts. What are the things you imagine in your heart? A heart that conceives evil thoughts and executes it is not Gods delight. If you check out the scriptures the people God uses, He checks there heart and their affection and is usually towards God and His things.
  5. The Feet’s that run Towards Evil: where are you standing? Where you stand and how you stand can determine whether you are blessed or cursed. The things into which you pour all your resources and energy, determines if you will be blessed or not. What are the things you pursue the most? Are they good or bad? These are what God looks at when He is judging you.
  6. A False Witness that Speaks Lies: you are not to bear false witness to anything or anyone. Don’t be part of perverting justice because it attracts curses not just for you but for generations after you.
  7. One who Sows Discord among Brethrens: God does not like tale bearers. Don’t be a troublemaker. Gossip is like cancer; it destroys.

What God does not like are pointers to what He likes. He wants our eyes to be filled with humility and mercy, wants us to always say the truth at all times, He wants our hands to be an extension of His; protecting and defending the helpless, He wants our thoughts to be glorious all the time, He wants our feet to propagate the gospel instead of running towards evil, He wants our mouth to speak the truth no matter the cost, He wants us to be peace makers among men, He wants us to be trouble shooters and not talebearers.
