1 Samuel 16:7
But the LORD
said to Samuel, "Do not look on his appearance or on the height of
his stature, because I have rejected him; for the LORD sees not as
man sees; man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on
Our appearance and possessions say
little about our beliefs. God is concerned about our actions that
reflect what it’s in our heart. Let our actions and thoughts be
compassionate and loving toward all Creation.
While today’s society, more often than not,
focuses on appearance and bases success on wealth and power, our
Creator is concerned about our hearts and our willingness to obey
Him/Her. Our attitude towards God’s creatures reflects the condition
of our hearts in relationship to God.
God calls us to reflect His/Her love for us
onto all Creation. Our actions reflect the state of our hearts.
