Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover...

One of the biggest mistakes a person could make is to judge a book by its cover. I've done it before and I'm sure I'm not the only one. The same thing can easily happen when it comes to people. Some of my closest and most loyal friends are those that I would never have expected. If I were to only look on the outside, I would have missed the precious gold that was in them. Judging people by the way they look on the outside is done frequently in our culture, and couldn't be a bigger mistake. I'm thankful God doesn't base everything on what He sees on the outside of us. 1 Samuel 16:7 tells us this plainly and what the Lord does, "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; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart." I remember watching a TV story about two individuals, who at different times entered "Britain's Got Talent", the show "America's Got Talent" was modeled after. Both of these eventual winners shocked the judges the first time they sang. Just looking on the outside, both were laughed at and not much was expected from them. But as soon as they began singing something powerful happened. It's like what was on the inside was released. As you go about your day, don't just pass by people because of what they look like. Why you may ask? Because you might be completely missing the gold right before your eyes. Check out their clips at the following links and enjoy :) and also  These links have over 6 million and 90 million hits respectively. Why? Because they were truly gold that was found. Enjoy!
