A Matter Of The Heart: 1 Samuel 16:6-7

    As humans we look on the outward appearance of other people.  We tend to judge what we see, whether if they look strong or appear to be a good person from the clothes they wear or public display of good works to receive praise from men.  Truly, we cannot see the inner depths of man’s motive which come from the heart, but God does not see as man sees, as he looks at the heart.  Be careful not to judge someone based on their outward physical appearance, whether their stature or how they appear good from putting on a show to receive praise. 
     Pray in the Holy Spirit for wisdom, understanding, and sound judgment without judging someone.  1 Samuel 16:6-7 So it was, when they came, that he looked at Eliab and said, “Surely the Lord’s anointed is before Him.”  But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature because I have refused him.  For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”  Matthew 6:1-4 “Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them.  Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven.  Therefore when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men.  Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward.  But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.  NKJV
