1 Samuel 16:7 – But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD sees not as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.

We are quick to judge. We are constantly judging looks, intelligence, and means. Just by looking at someone, we form opinions and draw conclusions. Nothing escapes our judgmental eyes. But, we have no right to do these things. We are unqualified to judge.

The only true way to judge someone is by understanding his heart and the only one who can see and understand the heart is God. The only thing that is even worth judging we can never know. And, quite simply, because we don’t know we can’t judge.

If you are ever tempted to judge those around you, remember how little our judgement of the outward appearance matters. It is only God’s thorough judgement of the heart that holds any value.
