God Looks at the Heart

Text: I Samuel 16:1-13

This week we come to a crucial turning point in I Samuel as the LORD identifies his choice for king of Israel to replace Saul, the failed people’s choice for king. This text contains one of the most famous phrases in Scripture, “For the LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.”

Our desire should be to see ourselves and others as God sees. The world is blind to the beauty of Christ who is most beautiful of all.
