This morning's devotion in Our Daily Bread referred to a church tradition which divides sin into seven categories: pride, anger, envy, impurity, gluttony, slothfulness, and greed. Although the order often varies, secular lists name them: pride, envy, gluttony, lust, anger, greed, and sloth. God, on the other hand, has His own list of seven things He considers abominable. Solomon wrote, "These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto Him: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, an heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among (the or one's) brethren" (Prov. 6:16-19).
For illustrating my point, imagine that Jesus is still physically walking around on our planet. Jesus won't be prideful; He is humble (Phil. 2:5-8)! He won't be a liar; He is Truth (Jn. 14:6)! He won't kill; He is Life (Jn. 10:10)! He won't make up stuff; He tells it like it is (Jn. 6:63; 8:26, 28; 8:38; 12:50; 14:10; etc.)! He won't be mischievous; He will not sin (Heb. 4:15)! He won't be a false witness; He won't be a witness at all - He is the Judge (Rev. 16:5; 19:2, 11; 20:12-13)! And He will not sow discord among His brethren, the Church, for its unity is His desire (Jn. 17:11, 21-23)!
Doing His will automatically means not doing His won'ts!
