Memory Verse
“…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).
 
Words of Wisdom
In a particularly memorable proclamation (1 Samuel 16:7), the
Lord uttered one of the most important statements in all of
Scripture regarding divine concerns and human capacities. God
first affirmed his fundamental “otherness”: “the LORD does not
look at the things man looks at” (v. 7). Neither the Lord’s
considerations nor his abilities are the same as those of humans;
whereas “man looks at the outward appearance” (lit., “the eyes”),
“the LORD looks at the heart.” The Lord alone has the capacity
to observe and judge a person’s “heart,” that is, one’s thoughts,
emotions, and intents. On God’s scales these matters outweigh
all other aspects of a human life.
