When Samuel was sent to Jesse to look among Jesse’s sons for the one who was to be king (1 SM 16), God gave Samuel a key when he told Samuel about the first son, Eliab, “Do not judge from his appearance or from his lofty stature…Not as man sees does God see, because he sees the appearance but the LORD looks into the heart.”

In my opinion, this is the best advice anyone could ever give or receive.
