1 Samuel 16:7b the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
The Lord sees the thoughts and intents of the heart. I find that I have to check my heart quite often and this is one reason I have a tendency to keep my mouth shut a lot of the time. The Word also says that it is the words of our mouth that proceed out of the heart. How can I condemn what God loves? God loves every creature on the face of this earth, the things that man does against His Word is what He hates. The Father sent His only begotten Son to die for every human being on this planet so that we would have a way back from our fallen state into His family. We must love what He loves and hate what He hates.
