THRESHOLD JR RETREAT INFO
Judging others by what we don’t know about them
1 Samuel 16:7
Was something ignited in you when you watched this video? Sadly, many of us feel like as misunderstood, ignored, and chastised as the young man in the video.
Remember king David? Something deep inside of him knew that he had great worth in God’s eyes but few recognized it. In fact, David’s dad completely overlooked him when Samuel came to anoint one of his sons as king.
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7
This is good news for us, isn’t it? When you are misunderstood, ignored, and chastised you can rest knowing that God’s looking at your heart. In the same way, when you look at others you can’t just judge them based on what you see, you have to discover what’s inside of their heart.
- Would you rather develop break dancing skills or dubstep skills?
- When was a time you were hurt because someone misjudged your heart?
- If you could undo a single misunderstanding between yourself and someone you love, what would it be?
Chew on This:
If God judges us by looking at our heart then why is it so hard for us to get to know what’s inside someone’s heart?
