When the prophet Samuel went to Bethlehem to anoint one of Jesse's sons to be the next king, Samuel saw the oldest son, Eliab, and was impressed by his appearance. The prophet thought he had found the right man, but the Lord rejected Eliab. God reminded Samuel that He "does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart" (1 Samuel 16:7).
Without God, I could not have come to where I am now.Without God. I did not know the purpose of my life and neither did I know my real value on the earth before I came to know God a few years ago. I tried to win other's approval to prove myself to be an important person. I was longing for romantic relationship but no one accepted me.
