“But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart’” (1 Samuel 16:7).

The old adage is “You can’t judge a book by its cover.” Yet, how often we fall into the trap of judging others and evaluating their worth on the basis of superficial appearances. While exterior appearances can be augmented it is the heart that tells the true story of a person’s character. What we need are transformed eyes that see each person as one created in the image of God.
