“Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” I Samuel 16:7. How people look on the outside is not an indicator of what is in their hearts. God’s focus is on the inner life of people. He looks far below the surface of someone’s appearance and that’s what He desires for us to do as well. He also knows the hearts of those who appear to be righteous but are full of hypocrisy on the inside. God’s message of welcome, which we are to show to others, is clear. He says to all who seek Him, “Everyone who thirsts, come the waters.” Isaiah 55:1. No one will know what you mean when you say, “God is Love” unless you show it.
