Bible Marginalia- Heart Watch

Bible Marginalia Series---#267

1 Samuel 16: 7b
Sermon notes

Samuel comes to Bethlehem
 to anoint the new King.
He comes with trepidation and fear
 that Saul the King would find out.
Jesse marches out his sons-
seven of them to be exact.
He sees handsome men 
and judges it to be one of them.
The Lord says they are not the ONE.
"For the Lord sees not as man sees,
man looks on the outward appearance, 
but the Lord looks on the heart."

And then he asked if there are any more.
Well- just the youngest.
David comes and the Lord says- 
"This is he."
Samuel anoints David and the 
Spirit of the Lord rushed upon David
 from that day forward.
Pretty dramatic day there.

A reminder of just what is 
important to the Lord-our hearts.
And how often we get sidetracked
 with all the things that are not heart-tending.
Lord, keep me focused
