People do judge others based upon appearances. This is as long as human history has been. And people are often insecure because of those (perceived) inadequacies. But God told Samuel that that is not how we should judge people. 1 Samuel 16:6-7 argues the exact opposite.
Questions for further thought:
1. Have you ever felt judged by others because of a perceived inadequacy of appearance?
2. How have you contrasted that feeling by how God sees you? If so, how often?
Challenge: Remember that God sees you as you truly are. He created you, and He knows your inmost essences better than you do yourself, much less other people. So, remember that if you are living with a distorted view of yourself, it is, in fact, distorted and untrue. Take this day to pray that God lets you see yourself as He does.
