GOD’S LOOKING AT THE HEART

God’s Not Just Looking At The Outside, He’s Looking At The Heart

His words came across with great passion and flair,

Electricity and excitement filled the air,

He had unquestionably mastered preaching as an art,

But God’s not just looking at the outside, He’s looking at the heart.

Her voice was melodious oh what a delight,

She sung out those words with all of her might,

No doubt she was the right choice for the part,

But God’s not just looking at the outside, He’s looking at the heart.

The program went beautifully the children all came,

Hot dogs, drinks, chips and a beautiful game,

Bible stories were presented on eye-catching charts,

But God’s not just looking at the outside, He’s looking at the heart.

Every house was visited in the neighborhood that day,

Absolutely nothing or no one got in the way,

The outreach team moved with precision like a well aimed dart,

But God’s not just looking at the outside, He’s looking at the heart.

The service was planned the special guests came,

Excellence was definitely the name of the game,

Everything went perfectly right from the start,

But God’s not just looking at the outside, He’s looking at the heart.

My fellow Ambassadors remember each day,

It’s important to search our motives and pray,

Our deeds may seem good, worthy and sweet as a tart,

But God’s not just looking at the outside, He’s looking at the heart.

 

“……..The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”

(I Samuel 16:7 – KJV)

 

“Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.”

(Matthew 6:1 – NIV)
