  •  In Proverbs 6:16-19 we read about “six things the Lord hates – no, seven things he detests:”

    1. Haughty eyes, being arrogantly proud, overbearing and self-important.

    2. A lying tongue: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” You can actually kill someone with words. When you speak words of slander, gossip, false accusation, hatred, criticism, discouragement and contempt, you can actually kill someone. Such words over days and weeks, months and years can actually break someone’s spirit.

  •  “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7). Our thoughts affect our behavior for good or evil. If a person dwells on negative thoughts that person will become negative and pessimistic. If we fill our minds with good thoughts, we will do good things.

    There is a relation between our thoughts and our behavior. What we think about, we do. If we fill our thought life with wholesome things, the result will be seen in every area of life.
