1 Samuel 16:1-13 – Focus Verses 6 & 7: “When they arrived Samuel took one look at Eliab and thought, “Surely this is the Lord’s anointed!” But the Lord said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

"The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world" -- John 1:29
The Lamb is an interesting animal and important symbol in Christianity. If you look up the characteristics of sheep you find out why God often uses them to illustrate believers. A minister & friend of mine taught on Psalm 23-"The Lord is my Shepherd", in our home bible study group a few years ago, and it was an excellent teaching because he brought out various attributes on how like people, sheep are stubborn, have "crowd-mentality", are defenseless, and prone to stray, among other things. That definitely sounds like people LOL! We laughed through that entire message....
