I Samuel 16:7 ” The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

Over the course of my career in Health Care Administration I have interviewed many people for positions I needed filled.  Many times I would size up the applicant in just a few minutes…looking at how they came dressed for the interview, or how they conducted themselves, etc.  But I learned early on that my immediate perception of the person was often flawed.  For it wasn’t until I could discern their hearts…their passion for caring for others, that I could then make an accurate decision about employment.  I am so thankful that God looks beyond my outward appearance and searches my heart…not looking at the superficial me but rather at my inner most being.  For God knows my heart and its secrets, (Psalm 44:21) and still loves me.  And for that, I will put my hope and trust in Him.
