“Look Inward, Not Outward”

“Our facade will get us but so far and only fool those that don’t make a difference.” – #ToddCPittman

“1 Samuel serves as a good reminder that we are given choices in life. Two of the many choices we have are how we look at other people and how we present ourselves to the world. In other words, we can choose to limit our vision of who a person is by being impressed by their physical looks or wealth and we can also limit our prosperity by putting our energy into pleasing those around us whose accolades have no weight when it comes to our eternal fate. Let us learn from the prophet Samuel and how his limited perspective impacted his ability to see beyond outward appearances. Good looks don’t make a good leader and a fat bank account doesn’t give us perspicacity. We need to be careful to not judge a book by its cover and stop wasting our time and resources on being people pleasers. Instead, let’s put our attention to what we can do to transform the thoughts from our minds and the words that flow from our lips to ensure that they are pleasing to God. Let’s make fewer deposits into false narratives here in the natural and increase our investment in our treasure in heaven.” – #ToddCPittman
