Hands that shed innocent blood?

My dear friends that have been following these articles wrote the following comment about last week’s post, “Why only assistants?
Does the “hat” only fit them?

Well, I would like to make it very clear once again, so it’s not forgotten by anyone- these posts are for all those who deep down want to live a correct life with God. To be more straight forward, they are for me too because everything I mention here relates to my spiritual life and above all for me to be more vigilant. Whoever doesn’t commit any sin cast the first stone. Isn’t that what Jesus said to those who wanted to condemn the prostitute? Let’s not act like the Pharisees thinking we don’t need to be warned. To say that God is with you, that you’re a assistant of God who will overcome, and further more are words that will not revolutionize your life because you’ve already heard all that. Be prudent and demand more of yourself in that sense!

Let us continue to look within ourselves and find out what things we practice that God hates. Today we will talk about hands that shed innocent blood.

Read Proverbs 6:16-19 again:

“These six things the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren.”

You’re probably already asking yourself: But, I’ve never killed anyone, how can I shed innocent blood?

It does actually related to a violent act, but we can’t look at it only in the literal sense, we must go deeper. If we look deeply we can see that it’s mainly referring to committing an injustice.

Note that the hands symbolize our actions. So, when is that a person can shed innocent blood?


  • When you hear something about someone and you add on to it without examining the true facts ;
  • When your intention is to harm other and wanting the worst for them;
  • When you take no pleasure in seeing others become successful.
  • When you’re always looking for others faults and defects;
  • When you see your companion in danger and don’t warn them;
  • When you know you have to tell the truth and you don’t.


Surely these attitudes displease our God greatly, therefore correct them immediately don’t leave it for later.

Review your life and eliminate these behaviors in your character.
