Isaiah 11:3-4 “God will not judge by what He sees with His eyes, or decide by what He hears with His ears; but with righteousness He will judge the needy, with justice He will give decisions for the poor of the earth.”

God’s judgment is always balanced & fair. Never will He correct by superficial evidence or rebuke because of shallow external appearance only. And we’re suppose to be the same way…but how many times do we make snap decisions about someone only by what they look like? In the Book of Galatians, during Paul’s absence, teachers from Palestine had come insisting that the Gentile Believers couldn’t be “true Christians” if they weren’t circumcised. Paul refuted this notion by saying, “God doesn’t judge by external appearances.” (Galatians 2: 6) …and neither should we. Or we can look at John 7:24 where Jesus is arguing with the Jewish leaders about Him healing on the Sabbath. He tells them, “Stop judging by mere appearances, and make a right judgment.” In other words, the Jewish leaders were picking & choosing what they thought was correct to do on the Sabbath (even if it meant going against Sabbath regulations) rather than doing what was ethically upright.
