Several past Presidents of our wonderful country either said or implied that character does not matter.
1 Samuel 16:7 – 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 man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
God judges by faith and character not appearance. While most of us spend hours maintaining our outward appearance, we should be spending more time developing our inner character.
Our journey here on earth can be just a few years or our life can be over many decades. My dear caring, compassionate Uncle’s life’s journey here on this earth has expanded over eighty three years.
We can allow the storms and the deep dark valley experiences in our lives to make us bitter, resentful, unforgiving and hateful or we can allow the twists, turns, ups, downs, pains, disappointments and heart breaks to turn our hearts to God for Him to comfort us and in return use us to comfort others.
