Bible Verse of the Week: 1 Samuel 16:7b

"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 16:7b
One thing to remember is that God is unlike man in mind. A lot of times, we tend to interpret holy things by human standards. God thinks so differently than we do in a way that we cannot fathom. It is human nature to classify or judge someone by their appearance. People do not like others, and look down on them, if they are wear odd clothing or are un-socially correct in stature. However, in reality, so long as one is a true believer in Christ, it really does not matter if one is too short or not smart or ugly or wears old clothes. We should not be judging others, because that is not what God called us to do. We need to keep in mind that we should not worry about making our outward appearance seem beautiful, cool, or whatever else is appealing, because God does not care about those things. "The Lord looks at the heart." That is all that matters-our heart. No matter how we are on the outside, in the end, it all depends on the inside. ~ Jesselyn
