PROVERBS 8:13-21

13To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech.14Counsel and sound judgment are mine; I have insight, I have power.15By me kings reign and rulers issue decrees that are just; 16by me princes govern, and nobles all who rule on earth.17I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.18With me are riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity.19My fruit is better than fine gold; what I yield surpasses choice silver. 20I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice, 21bestowing a rich inheritance on those who love me and making their treasuries full.

8: 13   The more a person fears (reveres) and respects God, the more he or she will hate evil. Love for God and love for sin cannot coexist. Harboring secret sins means that you are tolerating evil within yourself. It may seem safe for a while, but sin will ultimately strangle you. Make a clean break with sin and commit yourself completely to God. If you are not laser focused on moving toward a deeper relationship with God, then you are actually moving away from him.

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and know your reverence and love of god means to hate evil!! by RICHARD DEAN BROOKS
