Looking on hearts
Samuel goes to find the next king. He looks at Jesse’s sons and thinks they are all handsome, strong, brave, but God has other plans. He chooses the youngest son. A boy. A dirty shepherd. David. And God tells Samuel to stop looking at the outside. “You can see it, too, how the world keeps looking for beauty in appearances rather than in His appearing.”
“You only begin to change your life when you begin to change the way you see.”
What can you do today to concentrate on seeing people’s hearts, not their appearance? Start learning to look deeper. Ask God to help your life be about the heart, not what’s on the outside.
