Look beyond the Looks (WWIW)

1 Samuel 16:7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” As I read this verse, I was inspired to write something on Relationships… Generally, when a lot of people meet the opposite sex that we fancy, the first thing we probably notice is their looks and of course there has to be an attraction but a lot of guys / ladies are so particular about dating “Mr Handsome” or “Miss World”, “Miss Curvy”, “Mr Tall, Dark & Handsome” etc…even if they have a bad attitude, bad spirit or bad breath lol.

However, I believe we need to look out for a potential spouse that God has chosen / will approve of; because there are many Men & Women who may “tick our boxes” but God has probably rejected / not approved them for us, simply because God sees beyond the physical and looks at the heart. So, like God told Samuel in this bible verse, let us look beyond the looks…Let us inquire from the LORD & listen to Him before choosing “Eliab” because we might just be saving ourselves from a heartache, a heartbreak & many more…Let us pick “David” who God has chosen, besides he is also good looking 😉(see verse 1 Samuel 16:12) . Above all, let us see beyond their designer shoes, cars, money, 6-packs, hips, curves n all…because these things can all change / disappear in a day…However, don’t get it twisted, these things are good because we all want to be with people we are physically attracted to, but a good spirit, a great personality & an intelligent mind, are also important in addition to these physical attributes. May God help us make the right decisions. Let the reader understand.

    There is always an element of attractiveness that comes in to the equation, that’s what first leads you to even look in that direction and decide to make your next move. Then even the best looking dude may turn out to be a total arse and you walk away. So, you need a balance of mutual attractiveness and good character to make something last.

    I think we put so much limitation on ourselves when we have a list of fleshy specifications, like looks. I think even age-wise. Some people say they can never settle with someone more than 1yr older. I guess preference is not a bad thing, but we should let holiness be the standard.

    1. The one that annoys me is tribal differences. We’re first children of God before Nigerians or Americans or whatever. SMH.
