Bible Highlights: 1 Samuel 16-18

1 Samuel 16:7 
"...Do not pay attention to his appearance and how tall he is, for I have rejected him. For the way man sees is not the way God sees, because mere man sees what appears to the eyes, but Jehovah sees into the heart." 

Jehovah sets a great example for us at 1 Samuel 16:7 where he looks at the heart rather than at outward appearances. We have the tendency to judge people based on our first impression of them, which usually involves how they look. Our judgements can be completely inaccurate, because we can't hear thoughts or see intentions. We need to remember that the inner person is all that matters.
