More Than Outside Appearances

           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

I passed a parking lot recently and saw a couple looking at a previously owned vehicles that were parked there. Even though prices may have looked enticing you don't get the 'big picture' until you look under the hood and take it for a test drive. There is more to a new car than outside appearances. 

The same goes for mankind. Our outward looks may be nice but how is the inside man, the heart. It takes more to be a lovely or handsome person than just grooming. You should be more concerned with the inside than the outside. 

You probably have heard the saying "You can't judge a book by its' cover" although as an author I know the cover is important in order to get people's attention. But it is what is inside that counts? How is your inner man? Does it need some maintenance? 

PRAYER: I don't want to be so overly concerned about my outward appearance. Help me as I seek to be more like you by reading the Bible and praying. I choose to seek a life pleasing to Christ and glow for you so others may ask me for the reason of hope in me. In Jesus' name. Amen.
