A thought from the scriptures

For the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart. — 1 Samuel 16: 7

"We ... tend to evaluate others on the basis of physical, outward appearance: their 'good looks,' their social status, their family pedigrees, their degrees, or their economic situations," said Elder Marvin J. Ashton of the Quorum of the Twelve during the October 1988 general conference.

"When the Lord measures an individual, He does not (use) ... a tape measure but He measures the heart as an indicator of the person's capacity and potential to bless others."
