When they arrived, Samuel saw Eliab and thought, "Surely the LORD's anointed stands here before the LORD."1 Samuel 16:6-8 (New International Version)
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 man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."
I am comforted by the fact that the Lord does not look at the things man looks at > we look to wealth / position / experience whereas the Lord looks into our heart. He isn't impressed by ranks, badges and symbols of our self-important status. He isn't impressed about your stats > how many books you've written / sold > what your technorati score is > how many hits you receive to your website > how big your congregation is or how many folk you "manage". He doesn't care what phone you have or what car you drive. Doesn't mean a thing to Him.
So then if it doesn't matter to God... why does it matter to us?
