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.” – 1 Samuel 16:7
How do you take care of your physical appearance? Do you take your entire time just to have the perfect clothes, impeccable skin, and smooth hair? Or do you judge other based on their looks? So how do you deal with these questions? How’s your honest response?
Or perhaps, you’re the kind of person who used to get daunting stares from the others. Maybe you’re the type of person who’s too afraid to come out on his/her shell. You’re too afraid of what people would say and too scared on their remarks. Then suddenly, oblivious enough, you became a people pleaser.
BUT REMEMBER, people may judge your outward appearance – your height, weight, skin, face etc. – But at the end of the day, who’s the one that will really judge us? It is the One who knows our heart and the real us. So you better check you heart. Our Lord God will stand and judge us.
God bless everyone!
