DO NOT JUDGE BY APPEARANCE, ECWA DEVOTIONAL
WEDNESDAY, 29 JULY
TEXT: 1 SAMUEL 16: 1 – 13
TOPIC: DO NOT JUDGE BY APPEARANCE
Now that Saul has been rejected, another person has to replace him. Even though God directed Samuel to Jesse’s family in Bethlehem, he was using human standard as a criterion to choose the next leader. But God told him not to judge by appearance. While man looks at outward appearance, God looks at the heart. The outward appearance of a man should not be used to choose or judge him. We should allow the Lord, who knows the heart direct us to choose the right person. The choice of elders, pastors and other leaders should not be based on human perspective but God’s.
QUESTION: How do you choose leaders in your organization?
PRAYER: Please guide us Lord to always choose the right leaders; Amen.
