1 Samuel 16:7

I think this verse is particularly apt in our society, where so much value is placed on appearance. It may sound like a cliché to say “It’s what’s on the inside that counts”, but it’s so true.

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.
