Some things that God Loves

Humility: James 4:6 NRSV But he gives all the more grace; therefore it says, "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble."

Truth: Ephesians 4:25 NRSV So then, putting away falsehood, let all of us speak the truth to our neighbors, for we are members of one another.

Obedience: John 14:15 NRSV "If you love me, you will keep my commandments.

Faith: Hebrews 11:6 NRSV And without faith it is impossible to please God, for whoever would approach him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

Faithfulness: Psalms 117:2 NRSV For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD!

Righteousness: Psalms 33:5 NRSV He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the steadfast love of the LORD.

A number of other things: Galatians 5:2223 NRSV By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, (23) gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things.

God loves these things, because they are His character. Are these things a part of our character? Why not? It is very important to God and should be to us.
