Nowadays, whether we admit it or not, appearance is a big deal for every person. Perhaps it is human instinct to judge a person’s worth by what they see with their naked eyes. Even in the Old Testament, David was disregarded by his father to be chosen as King because of his lack of stature.
“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 people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart,’” (1 Samuel 16:7).
God’s Word leads us to the truth that although the world looks at a man’s appearance, we should learn to see a person’s worth by looking deep into their hearts. And definitely, a man of God, Edmilson Alcântara, from Ceará in Brazil understands this heart of God very well.
