1 Samuel 16:7b: “The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”President Lincoln had an ability to laugh at himself, especially his own physical appearance. When Senator Douglas once called him a “two-faced man,” Lincoln responded, “If I had another face, do you think I would wear this one?”Although his likeness is widely recognized, Lincoln is not known primarily for his appearance, but for his courageous stance for restoration of the Union and the abolition of slavery. He is often held up as an example of remarkable patience, determination, dedication, strong will, compassion, and thoughtfulness. These inner qualities are what mark Lincoln as one of greatest presidents.So much is made in our culture today of outward appearance and material possessions. When God measures a man, He puts the tape around the heart instead of the head.
