For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” (1 Sam 16:7b)
The Bible is replete with heroes of the faith – some of them we know by name, others simply by their stories. People like Abraham, King David, Isaiah, Esther, Deborah, John the Baptist, Jesus’ Disciples, and so many others. Some of them are not exactly heroes…people like Cain, Samson and Judas Iscariot to name a few.
Think of it…Moses raises his arms and God parts the Red Sea – making a way for the and the Israelites to escape Pharaoh’s army. Joshua leads the people around the city of Jericho 7 times and, boom, the walls crumble. David, as a young teen, shoots a small stone from his slingshot and topples Goliath.
There are so many amazing men and women in the bible that we look up to. In comparison, how could any of us possibly measure up? Talk about big shoes to fill!
Actually, they probably wore sandals…
God does not judge people the way the world judges – do not limit what you think He can do in and through you. The key is sincere faith in Him
