(Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading – Proverbs 7-9 & Romans 9)
“To fear the Lord is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech.” Proverbs 8:13
I must elevate my dislike for evil. I cannot tolerate it in myself.
“Search me, O Lord.” I must regularly beg God to examine me closely and reveal to me areas that are out of synch with His wishes.
I must be driven to be clean in His sight. There cannot be any comfort in living otherwise.
I should also be on full alert for things in my midst that lead me into temptation and evil. I must be very conscious of evil attractions and run from them.
