God see’s our hearts

As I was reading my bible this morning I came across this scripture:

1 Samuel 16:7

But the Lord said to Samuel : ” Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for the Lord does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”

This made me aware of times I have fallen in my own life and worried about what man thinks of me at times. I believe that stems from my dysfunctional upbringing, where I have been rejected from my parents. As lent approaches I plan to work on this fault. God see’s our hearts and we should only allow God to be our judge.  Pleasing him and no one else is what he desires from us.
