1 Samuel 16:7 (NLV) 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.”
How easy is it to fall prey to judging someone by their appearance?
Always remember, never judge a book by it’s cover… Don’t let yourself be tempted by the enemy with a beautiful person or sparkling treasure because you can’t know the poison or damage it’s hiding! Don’t let vanity have control over your judgments, always pray for the Father to keep you on guard. The enemy is slick and sneaky and knows our weaknesses better than we do ourselves.
Take the time to know someone truly. You can’t know the hurts and wounds that they have possibly carried for generations. Maybe, just maybe, God has called YOU to be the one to live out Jesus’ example of perfect love in their life.
Trust that the God Almighty has you positioned at the perfect spot for the perfect time!
