1 Samuel 16:6-13
verse 7b: “The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
These are truly words to live by. We all care so much about what other people see in and on and around us. Some of us care more than others, it’s true. But we all care. Even caring about our own reputation could fall under these words. God sees my heart and knows when I am trying my hardest, and knows when I am not really trying at all. I need His help to make the right choices. More of God, less of me.
Holy Father, I need you with me every minute of every day. I need to turn to you with every difficult decision. I am thankful for your Spirit you have sent to dwell within me. Amen
