Read an interesting piece yesterday, about ceo's and how they are chosen.
Apparently it is not smarts, or schooling as much as size.
The difference on the hiring chances with just three more inches is stupendous.
It has always been that way. "Man looks on the outward appearance.."
It was that way with King Saul of old....with Goliath...with giants of the time.
But it has rarely been that way with God.
He has nothing against size....ie elephants, whales, mountains, universe....
It is just that to Him the insides are much more important than the outsides.
That's why He chose David (small of stature, ruddy of appearance) instead of Saul (head and shoulders above others.)
Like the rest of the verse (above) says - "Man looks on the outward appearance, but God looks on the heart."
So if you want to be a champion, keep your focus on the inside. Keep seeking a complete makeover, by turning your life over to Jesus in a clear and decisive manner. Talk everything over with Him and seek constantly to become more like Him in spirit and action.
Remember the promise: "If any person is in Christ (turned over completely to Him) he is a new creature."
And when you are looking for a champion to be your friend, or ally, or partner, don't overlook the short guy. He might just be a whole lot bigger on the inside than you think.
6 feet tall, and still growing inside.
