Who Was That Masked Man?

1 Samuel 16:7
But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."
Many times people hide behind a fake exterior. The person we see on the outside is not the person they are on the inside. In this passage today God warns Samuel, and us, not to judge from the visible exterior. Now for humans that is hard because we don't have the ability, most times, to see past the exterior and look into the persons heart. Many times a person who appears carefree is often struggling with many problems on the inside. Sometimes people act harsh or arrogant when they are really trying to hide feelings of inadequacy. You never know what a person is dealing with on the inside . So, today ask God to help you see beyond the exterior and into the persons heart. We might all be very surprised to see what we find there. A good place to start would be with yourself.
