Seven things I hate


Proverbs 6: 17-19 "There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him:
haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers."
 

Well these are the seven things God hates. So I got to thinking about the seven things I hate. (I only get to pick seven according to my rules tonight, that's why there aren't more. Rules are rules.)

1) Lack of solitude. That is absolutely on the top of my list.

2) Bland writing. My definition of bland are a lot of Christian publications that stay very generic so as to not offend anybody but in doing so, they are really not relevant to anybody. I want to hear from somebody who really has something to say. Even if I disagree with what someone says, I enjoy experiencing a person's passion in their writing. That's why most of the time I do not read these vanilla publications. I have taken to reading blogs a lot because they are not edited by people who publish bland publications. :-) 

3) When something is not right with one of my kids - they are sick or going through something.

4) Prejudice

5) I know all the scriptural reasons behind it (spare me the theological dissertations...I realize the "rain falls on the just and the unjust" and all that) but I still hate it when one of my precious Christian friends or family members struggle or die with a sickness and disease but some of the meanest people in the world live longer.

6) I hate it that Martha Stewart went to prison but O.J. Simpson did not. I can't stand that guy. Martha Stewart is basically teaching the world to make first class cupcakes and how to fold our sheets, and meanwhile O.J. is out there writing, "If I did it...here's how." That guy makes me sicker than sick. By the way, I was never so glad to see Martha back on TV. While she was gone I almost forgot how to fold the sheets. 

7) I hate it when people have a sense of entitlement.
