The gift of a relationship may not come in the package you expected. The needed friendship may not come from the person you anticipated. Many times our expectations of an individual do not come to fruition. The person God positions to bless us may be one that is unexpected and unanticipated. But…take the gift.
While we are busy being enamored by a person’s physique or style of dress, God has already evaluated their hearts, and consequently their fit into or not into our life, purpose, and destiny. So look deeper. Look beyond surface level variables.
For Meditation: But the Lord said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
1 Samuel 16:7
Remember…take the gift!
