“But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. 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
My Precious One,
My heart is drawn to yours and nothing subjective affects that draw. In fact, the pull of my heart to yours is the essence of who I am—love, mercy, kindness and compassion.
When you reflect the nature of who I am, as your father, I am proud. The world is dazzled and impressed by what is fleeting. The conditions are harsh, judgmental and merciless; it truly is survival of the fittest, smartest and strongest.
I love to invest in the eternal. As you your body readies itself to return to dust, remember to invest as I do.
Truly consider if what you’re relying on is stable. In the end, it all comes down to the heart. The condition of it (the thoughts and intents) are what I value. See the heart of others and nurture their growth in me. This is investing in the eternal. It’s how Jesus lived, making the choices of a true king.”
