Do you find yourself judging people by height, weight and appearance, sizing them up? Everyone does it. What qualities catch your eye the most? The Lord looks at our heart and does not judge us by appearance. Often we miss the mark when judge someone by their appearance. We don’t know their heart, their hurts, their trials and their relationship with God. Keep these words that the Lord told Samuel in mind next time you judge someone.
But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”
1 Samuel 16:7
