1 Samuel 16:7

The Lord looks on the heart.


Samuel assumed that Eliab, the eldest son of Jesse, was the one the Lord had selected to be Israel’s new king because of his strong physical appearance.

Doctrine or Principle

God judges us by our thoughts and desires rather than by our outward appearance.


Rather than focus on outward appearance, pray to see yourself and others as God sees you.
