Thank God for canned soup. Back in Abraham and Sarah’s day I’m sure things were different, but today we have canned (sometimes over-processed) soup, touting nutritious facts that stagger the mind. There are so many types. There are favorites like tomato and chicken noodle. These get a twist in the soup aisle. Have you ever stopped and really looked at the galaxy sized space just for soup? It’s like walking into the cereal aisle, except better for you. The marketing for soup is powerful too. Heaven forbid you swing your hand a couple of inches to the left and aren’t paying attention. You can get into a mixture of vegetables native to places you’ve never heard of before. Who knew buying soup could be so complex?
What if someone came along and took all the labels off? Then what would we have? We’d have to judge the taste, content and nutrition soley by opening each can and getting to know the soup itself. That’s how God does it with us.
“But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: 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
God knows what is in the heart of each person. We go by our five senses so the devil puts labels on each of us. Then he switches all of them. The most attractively labeled are often times filled with rotten tomatoes. But God asks us to change how we see each other. We should ask… God if you were me how would you treat my fellow believer? God if you were me, what would you say, think about, feel towards, or do to bless my neighbor?
God Bless You Today!
