Jeremiah 6:16

Thus says the Lord: Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths where the good way is, and walk in it; Then you shall find rest for your souls.

Judging on Appearance or Impression

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

Thoughts on today’s verse

Have you ever wondered how many friends you may have lost simply by judging them on their first appearance or impression? I’m amazed at how the first impression very seldom tells us much of substance about another. We’re not really going to be able to evaluate people properly until the Lord reveals at judgment what is really in their heart. Don’t you think that we should give them time for their heart to show before we make a decision about them, too?!

Prayer:
Father, who alone knows each heart, help me be more patient with others before forming an opinion about them. Please give me eyes to see them as Jesus does. Through him I pray. Amen.
