1 Samuel 16:4-7

“Samuel did what the Lord commanded and came to Bethlehem. The elders of the city came to meet him trembling and said, “Do you come peaceably? And he said, “Peaceably; I have come to sacrifice to the LORD. Consecrate yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice.” And he consecrated Jesse and his sons and invited them to the sacrifice. When they came, he looked on Eliab and thought, “Surely the LORD’s anointed is before him.” But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart” – When one chooses style over substance, they should not be surprised when things end up not being what they seem. If you want to end up with a better group of people around you, then follow the Lord and look to the heart of those who you bring into your inner circle…Indeed, while it is true that there is a time and place for appearance and style, remember that quality and character are ALWAYS on time!
