Beauty

Samuel Anoints David
 

"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

Overview

After Saul has been rejected by God as king of Israel, Samuel the prophet is in mourning. God sends him to Jesse to anoint the next King (one of Jesse’s sons). On arrival Samuel is looking for a ‘kingly’ person, he looks at the outward appearance. However God says to him that He is not looking at the outward appearance, but to the heart. This is far more important to God.

Interestingly when David stands before Samuel, his outward appearance is noted. The wording is interesting and kind to David. Beauty is not about a societal standard or ideal but about celebrating the good of someone.
