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. (1 Samuel 16:7)

How completely terrifying and how completely beautiful.
My heart is terrifying to look at.
But I am so thankful He does not look upon outwardly.
He knows where our real merit lies.
And that's scary at times.
Because I know my heart does not always hold what I want it to hold.
But how reassuring that is.
That our beauty does not lie in our imperfect blemishes and crooked teeth.

If only we could do the same.
View hearts and not faces.
