Treasure Hunt

“Not as man sees does God see, because he sees the appearance but the Lord looks into the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7

How many times do we make assumptions based on appearances? In our business, we always tell our staff to treat everyone well. Even if someone is in slippers, torn shorts, or a house dress, our staff are supposed to greet them and take care of them. One time a scruffy man in shorts and slippers came into our store, and he was looking at magnets. One of our staff approached and started talking to him, and she found out that he collected magnets, and was able to sell him, not only several magnets, but a magnet board. 

During our busy day, do we dismiss the janitor in our office as not worth our time and effort to get to know? I know a busy CEO who when he goes to conferences, always takes the time to get to know the names of the food servers and people behind the scenes. He always finds it interesting to talk to them. 

When we try to see people through God’s eyes, the world will be a more beautiful place. We may find that the man who is rough and grumpy actually has a kind heart for animals. There is always treasure we can find in each person, and that is what God sees in us.
