Consider The Heart
1 Samuel 16:7 – “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (NIV 1978)
My Musing – Boy has this generation got it wrong. We spend so much time and money on appearance and looks, which does not really matter to God. God looks at who we are on the inside.
My Advice – While you do not have to be a slob or let yourself go, make sure you spend as much time and effort improving your character as you do on improving your appearance. Appearances quickly fade with the ravages of time. Character, on the other hand, will last into eternity.
