Ways We Show a Haughty Look

Seven Sins God Especially Hates

Scripture: “There are six things the Lord hates; seven that are an abomination to Him: Haughty eyes, lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood; a heart that devises wicked plans; feet that haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers. Proverbs 6: 16-19.

As Christians we know Jesus taught and manifested humility. One example was His washing the disciples’ feet. Also He showed and advocated humility by associating with all kinds of people.

You and I may consider ourselves a humble person but we can express haughty looks in unintentional ways. Or as grandparents do you brag about your grandchildren? Criticize and judge others? Feel somewhat superior to some others? Think you are wiser and more knowledgeable than many others?

Prayer thought:  What does the Bible teach about being humble? Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each look not only to his own interest, but also to interest of others. Philippians 2: 3-4.
