For man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” I Samuel 16:7 When Samuel was to select the next king of Israel from the sons of Jesse, he made a judgment based on first impressions. However, God’s chosen was not any of the older sons. The Spirit told Samuel, “Do not look at the appearance or at his physical stature” (I Sam. 16:7). God chose David, the youngest, who looked least like a king. God can help us view people through His eyes, for the Lord does not see as man sees;… the Lord looks at the heart. First impressions can often lead to wrong conclusions.
