Advent Devotional: Saturday, December 22

...the LORD sees not as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart. (1 Samuel 16:7)

A mistake all human beings are prone to is the error of judging by appearances. Some people seem to have it "all together," but everyone needs to hear and respond to the message of Jesus, no matter how "moral" they may appear to be. Some of us have a tendency to only go to those who are "down and out." But if Jesus had not shared the truth with the very respectable Nicodemus, would he have been born again?

Lord, teach us to share Your love with all. Let us not be blinded by a person's apparent success or his apparent lack of gross sin into thinking that he has no need of You!
