I saw this message on a pack of Squid Rings, a brand of snack food that I love. Naturally, I got a pack for myself. I was going to eat it during my movie night. To my absolute chagrin, the chips deteriorated in taste–another reminder that what we should not trust what we see in the packaging. In light of this, I’d like to share a passage from the Bible very much related to my chips experience.
1 Samuel 16:7
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.” (emphasis mine)
Indeed, the Lord does not look at our packaging or how we project ourselves to others. He looks at our hearts.
