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.”

Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee." (John 5:14 KJV)
"So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh." - Galatians 5:16

“...GOD! I knew it—when I was back home, I knew this was going to happen!....Ready at the drop of a hat to turn your plans of punishment into a program of forgiveness!" -- Jonah 4:1-2 MSG
