Why do men judge other men depending upon the women on their arm? Something a little bird told me, they say her appearance, and character, directly represented the type of man he was. Now, I don’t know how true this may be, or how it exactly works, but look ya’ll, Jesus looks at the Heart. The end.
1 Samuel 16:7-12
7 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 theLord looks at the heart.”
8 Then Jesse called Abinadab and had him pass in front of Samuel. But Samuel said, “The Lord has not chosen this one either.” 9 Jesse then had Shammah pass by, but Samuel said, “Nor has the Lord chosen this one.” 10 Jesse had seven of his sons pass before Samuel, but Samuel said to him, “The Lord has not chosen these.” 11 So he asked Jesse, “Are these all the sons you have?”
“There is still the youngest,” Jesse answered. “He is tending the sheep.”
Samuel said, “Send for him; we will not sit down until he arrives.”
12 So he sent for him and had him brought in. He was glowing with health and had a fine appearance and handsome features.
Then the Lord said, “Rise and anoint him; this is the one.”
Even Samuel had to be instructed by God to not look at the physical attributes of the men before him. When Jesus decides on who he picks to lead his people, in all things, he looks directly past all of mans everything, and looks directly at their heart.
God doesn’t look at the human attributes, he doesn’t look at the worldly quantification. So who are we to do the same. No, this one is not for those of you who are thinking of those who judge. I’m speaking directly to those who feel unqualified, speaking directly to those who are saying “ Lord, who am I?”, and the “ Why have you chosen me?”. All God asks of us is to be devoted to him, with all our heart, mind, and soul. This is to point out those, who see nothing in themselves when they look in the mirror, nothing that God could use in this world. But God looks at your hearts, approves, and gives you what you need, to accomplish HIS mission on this earth, with HIS gifts.
Judge a man not on his appearance, but his heart. But who can know a man’s heart?
So, stop judging men, stop judging the person who see in your reflection, but thank the Lord, that he see’s someone worth using.
You are worth it to God, to use. When he looks at you, he see’s Christ in you, his attributes he creates, his gifts he gives, to use for his Glory.
Who are you? You are chosen.
