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
We can see on television, magazines and the “big screen” that outward appearance is overrated. So many people think that if a person “looks good” they must “be good”. So many times though, we find that the heart of someone can actually make them quite unappealing. When we look at people through the lens of their heart, the true person, we see the beauty that God has lavished on them. Don’t let your first impression be what’s on the outside, look to the inside for the real treasure.
