When they arrived, Samuel saw Eliab and thought, “Surely the LORD’s anointed stands here before the LORD.” 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 man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:6-7
1. God judges by faith and character, not by appearances.
2. Appearances do not always reveal what people are really like.
3. Continue to have a heart fully devoted to God.
Father, I want to have a heart fully devoted to you. I ask that you will continue to work in my life and continue to develop my character. Help me to be wise with my time, talents and treasures. Help me to be a person who walks the talk. Help me to be a person of quality and authentic faith. I believe that you are going to do great things in my life. I will be faithful to you in my choices and words today. Amen! Amen! Amen!
