The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.
—1 Samuel 16:7 (NIV)
The ways of this world…
this human nature…
are opposite of the Lord’s ways.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:8-9 (NIV)
