Looking at the Heart

When Samuel was choosing a new king for Israel, the tall and handsome young men seemed to be the obvious choices. But God was adamant that He was looking for someone whose heart was right with Him, not someone who looked good on the outside. God still seeks those whose heart is steadfastly turned to the Lord. All the beauty products and latest fashions cannot change who we are on the inside. God already knows our hearts and wants them surrendered to Him. The outside is a façade, a deceiving look at who we really are. The heart represents who we really are, the secrets we hide from others but can never hide from God.

May our hearts stay ever pure before the Lord, steadfastly seeking His will and His good pleasure and not our own.
