1 Samuel 16:7 — Today’s Verse for Friday, August 3, 2018

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 16:7

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Have you ever wondered how many potentially good friends you may have lost simply by judging them on your first impression of them? I’m amazed at how the first impression very seldom tells us much of substance about another person. We’re not really going to be able to evaluate people properly until the Lord reveals at judgment what is really in their hearts. Don’t you think that we should give them time to reveal what is in their hearts before we make a decision about them?! Let’s don’t just look on the outward appearance!

My Prayer…

Father, you alone know each heart. Please help me be more patient with others before forming an opinion about them. Please give me eyes to see them as Jesus does. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
