    This is an excellent commentary on how we look at ourselves – and at one another.

    God says in 1 Samuel 16:6-7: “So it was, when they came, that he looked at Eliab and said, ‘Surely the LORD’s anointed is before Him!’
    “7 But the LORD said to Samuel, ‘Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the LORD does not see as man sees;[a] for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.’”

    It is so important that we learn that we are beautiful inside and out because we are created in the image of Almighty God, not because of what the latest fashion says our shape or style “should” be. Too many people look down on themselves and others because they cannot measure up to an impossible standard of human perfection set by man when God sees us as the apple of His eye.
