The Lord looks beyond what we look like, what our gender or race happens to be, and He looks straight at our heart. Are you generous or selfish? Are you patient or quick to anger? Do you see the best or the worse in others? In yourself? Do you have a servant’s heart?
We can spend lots of effort on our outward appearance, but it will only please people. God wants us to put effort into our attitudes, character and in strengthening our faith. Everyone can see our face, our outward appearance, but only God can see our hearts. Only God can accurately judge people. What steps are you taking to improve your heart’s attitude?
Help me to focus on my heart’s attitude so when you look at me you are pleased with what you see.
