Fear of the Lord is to hate evil

It is been so long since I post the last memory verse. I've been busy with my fulltime work and helping out with our church camp. Thank God, our camp was a success. Many souls got saved and the messages were really challenging. Though the camp site is not really convenient (shortage of water, mosquitos, uncomfortable and dirty quarter), it cannot be compared to the spiritual blessings showered during the entire duration of the camp.

Now I am back and hopefully, I'll have a little time every day to post a new verse for us to memorize. To continue the "Fear of the Lord" series in the book of Proverbs, today's memory verse can be found in Proverbs 8:13. The Scriptures says "The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. "

In this verse, it is declared that if we fear God, we should not hate evil things, including pride and arrogancy and we will not be delighted in any evil way. Are we aware that if we delight on evil things or we patronize, admire, applaud people who commit unlawful act in the sight of God, though we are not the actual doer of these evil actions, we are partakers of their sin? Godly and heavenly things cannot be united with evil things. Hence, if we cultivate Godly fear in us, our heart will be furious with any amount of sin.
