~ "So, there's this person at work..."

"Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked." (Ps 97:10)

Hating evil is easy -- it's knowing what evil is in the first place that is the hard part.  When we sincerely desire to please God, we will be on the same page as God.  Our desire will be God's desires.  We will love what he loves, hate what he other words: If you love the Lord, you will hate evil.

If you do not despise the actions of people who take advantage of others, if you admire people who only look out for themselves, if you envy those who get ahead using any means to accomplish their ends, then your primary desire in life is not to please God.  Learn to love God's way and hate evil in every form - not only the obvious sins but also the socially acceptable ones.
