Something about the nature of God is that He hates sin. The Bible talks of the love of money, which is different from money itself. It also talks of the love of the truth, which is different from the truth. The Bible talks of hatred of iniquity as different from sin. A man may hate iniquity and make mistakes, but he’ll repent. David hated iniquity even though he made mistakes.
Compare David with Saul, the king. When the prophet told Saul that he had sinned, Saul said he should still honour him before the people so that they would think that everything was in order (1 Sam. 15:1-25). David, however, admitted that he had sinned when the prophet confronted him (2 Sam. 12:1-13).
God will respond faster to a man that recognises his sins and repents than somebody that is protecting his reputation.
Do you hate sin? Do you love righteousness? God is not interested in what is popular; He is interested in what is right. God blesses what is right and not what is popular. If you do it right and people do not recognise you, don’t worry, the time for the reward of righteousness is coming. God always anoints what is right. The Lord told me years ago that the future belongs to the man that is doing it right, not to the man that is doing it fast. Whatever you are doing, in ministry or marriage, in the boardroom or bathroom, always love righteousness and your head will never lack oil.
PRAYER: Father, help me to be the man of the future by choosing what is right in Your sight for me in Jesus’ name. Amen!
