Imagine your school decided to have a good-looks competition for everyone. Are people suddenly gymming and crash-dieting? Who wins?
David became Israel’s most loved king ever. God worked out his plans through David more than almost everyone else in the Bible. But David would not have won a beauty contest.
God didn’t care about David’s looks, but God really liked what he saw in his heart (check out 1 Samuel 16v1-13 http://bit.ly/19IPiWJ )David wasn’t perfect but he was learning to trust and worship God – even as a kid.
How’s your heart – your inner life? Do you need to pray David’s prayer: ‘God, create a clean heart in me!’?
