As God sees
We often chose leaders, employees, and even friends based on physical appearance: usually choosing the better-looking (although occasionally taking the opposite track – “he’s so sloppy, he must be a genius”).
The words of the Lord in today’s first reading (1 Samuel 16:1-13) are critical words to live by.
Not as man sees does God see,
because he sees the appearance
but the LORD looks into the heart.
By the grace of the Holy Spirit, may we always strive to see as God sees.
