I Samuel 16:7But 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 people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

            There is an awful lot of fuss over the “right” costumes for Olympic athletes this year. As always, the art of “dressing up” to create an image seems to just keep growing and reaching further and further into the population as a whole. Oddly, the idea of “costuming” a Biblical drama seems to remain relatively true to reality. Oatmeal colored robes, ragged head coverings etc. The poor man pictured above could very well be the wisest, most compassionate person you would ever meet, but since we tend to align our expectations in exact opposition to the way God looks at people we will probably never know.

            What has to change in me before I can begin to see what God sees in people? What might happen if I take a look deep inside of me and begin to see myself as God does? The longer I walk with Jesus, the more sense everything about Him that my puny brain can understand makes real sense.

            How’s your “interior life” as the old timers used to call it? What’s going on in your spirit? Are you driven by the need for acceptance? Are you enslaved by the need to “fit in” wearing just the right clothes, having just the right look?
