AVOIDING BAD ATTITUDES

June 19, 2017

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.”

 

LESSON

 

God evaluates people, namely, on the basis of their hearts, not their appearances or abilities. As He had done earlier in Scriptural history, God chose the son that was not the natural choice, showing that He does not bind Himself to what is traditional. It is unusual that Jesse did not have “David” present for Samuel’s inspection since he, too, was one of his sons.

 

When God looks at us, He looks directly into our hearts first! What will God see in our hearts? The first thing God will look for in our hearts is Jesus Christ! If God does not see Jesus in our hearts, we will be God’s enemies! Allow Jesus Christ, Savior and God, into your heart, into your life forever!  Try to see people as God sees people. We really should look at people’s hearts first not their public appearance!

Easier said than done right? But with Jesus in our hearts, we will see the spiritual if we yield to God the Holy Spirit! It all starts with humility before God and prayer.

 

Viewing people from the inside out is looking past the outside so you can truly know them. It is the way God sees us and the only way we should view ourselves and others in the world.

 

Memory Verse: Galatians 5:20

 

The only disability in life is a bad attitude.
