The LORD Looks at the Heart

I 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.”

While studying the early story of David, I came across this wonderful little nugget of truth.  We can spend all the time in the world sculpting the image of ourselves that others see, but we can't hide who we are from God.  In light of that fact, all I can say is...

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound,
that saved a wretch like me.
