Do not judge men’s words based on their looks and manner of delivery.
In other words, just because they are beautiful or speak eloquently does
not mean they are truthful or full of the goodness that comes from God.
Jesus said of the teachers of the law and Pharisees
“hypocrites! ..you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people’s bones and all uncleanness.” (Matt.23:27 NLT)
“Do not judge a book by its cover”, is not just an idiom of the worldly wise,
for indeed the God of creation believes the same; “…People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” (1 Sam. 16:7NLT)
Be Warned !
God may send a street dweller and one you may look on as an ugly mug to speak profound wisdom into your ear or through them give you a message by way of a fable or illustration.
God may send an angel looking like a race or a person of a religion you detest or one you deem a misfit not worthy of your time, to test you prior to unlocking a blessing in your life.
So brother, sister, I implore you to be warned and be aware!
