Proverbs 8:13 TPT “Wisdom pours into you when you begin to hate every form of evil in your life, for that’s what worship and fearing God is all about. Then you will discover that your pompous pride and perverse speech are the very ways of wickedness that I hate!”
Proverbs says wisdom pours down when we hate every form of evil in our life. It is not about observing the evil in others such as the unbelievers, religious, Gentiles, or people that have been evil to you, but in the person you see in the mirror. When we begin to examine ourselves, then true worship and fearing God begins and can continue.
Then you can correct yourselves allowing the Holy Spirit to fully reconcile you back to the Father through the empowerment of His Grace and from the work on the Cross.
