They are all in the same category!!

How careful we need to be when judging things. I think this is why the bible tells us to ‘ judge nothing before the time’,

 

1 Corinthians 4: 5

 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

 

Only the Lord can judge correctly as we don’t know the details enough. If you heard that someone murdered another person we would all say, that is wrong, and yes it is wrong, however not many will say the same thing if someone was proud.

 

Being proud is wrong and while most people will agree that it is a wrong attitude, do you know that a proud look and sowing discord among brethren are in the same category of things the Lord hates alongside shedding of innocent blood?

Proverbs 6: 16 – 19

These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

 

The above are all in the same category of things the Lord hates.

 

How careful we need to be.
