Judging a Book By Its Cover

I’m ready for my soccer game. My team is red, which means I just need to wear a red t-shirt. Not a problem for me. My favorite color is red. In addition to my red t-shirt, I have on red socks, red shorts, and a red fleece. It’s times like these where I say to myself, It’s ok to buy things that aren’t red.

Have you ever judged a book by its cover? Have you made an assumption about who someone is before you even got to know them?

I was reading about that in the Bible. God was showing Samuel who should be chosen as king. Samuel looked at the tallest, good looking men. “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.” 1 Samuel 16:7
