My mom said it, and now I’m saying it! Part 2

“We don’t hate, we strongly dislike!”

This one makes me chuckle!  Whether it was broccoli or a meanie at school, I was not allowed to use the word “hate!”  Rather, I was told instead say “strongly dislike.”  Mom’s intent was good.  I know she was just trying to help me think more carefully about what I was actually saying.  And it worked!  Now I still reserve the word “hate” for truly horrible things and am teaching my children the same principle.

Because I’m so sensitive to the word hate, it’s been interesting for me to make note of the things that the Bible says God hates.
Here’s just one reference on the subject…
“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.”
Proverbs 6:16-19

No Hate

Please share if you are continuing the trend with any “momisms.”
