Don’t Judge Me!
1 Samuel 16:6-7 (KJV)
6 And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the Lord‘s anointed is before him.
7 But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.
Many time we are judged by our appearance, socioeconomic, job status, community status, and even what church we attend. The Lord is saying to us today, I’m not looking at your past mistakes, failures, mishaps, or disappointments. I’m looking at your heart. What is your heart saying??? You can’t get wrapped up in how people judge your outward appearance. You make sure you know whats going on in your heart. At such time like this, we do not want the Lord to refuse us. Live a life that is pleasing unto the Lord.
2 Test me, Lord, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;
