A devotion by Sheryl Van Horn, ABCS Program Administrator - Southwest
“But the Lord said to Samuel, 'Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.'” - 1 Samuel 16:7
"All the seven sons of Jesse were brought before Samuel and yet God did not choose one of them. Samuel said to Jesse, 'Are all the young men here?' Then he said, 'There remains yet the youngest, and there he is keeping the sheep.' And Samuel said to Jesse, 'Send and bring him. For we will not sit down till he comes here.' David entered into the house of his father. Samuel heard, the Lord say, 'Arise, anoint him; for this is the one!'” - 1 Samuel 16:11-12
Have you ever felt ordinary, overlooked? I know I have that’s is why I love the story of David he began as a shepherd boy but God saw more and even more than that he saw a heart that would love and follow him. David also made some huge mistakes but repented and our merciful loving Father forgave him and used him for His glory. As we deal with hurting families and fellow staff member remember to see them as God may see them.
