Imagine if someone wrote the above in your senior memory book. In case you can’t read it this is what it says. “Janet, To the dumbest, stupidest, ugliest broad in our senior class. But you are OK I guess. Good luck in your married life. Love Peg
That is from my senior memory book. Though I have forgiven this person I have never forgot it. When I pull out my memory book and yearbooks I am reminded of it
Last week at Bible Study we talked about from a Shepherd to a King . We are making our way through the book "The Story" by Max Lucado & Randy Frazee. This is the verse that we were looking at.
1 Samuel 16:7
“But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."
Immediately I was drawn back to memory of what this classmate wrote in my memory book. What a life lesson even all the years later. People still judge others by their outward appearance and there are still those bullies who name call.
Just for the record I never thought that I was ugly. I knew I was not a beauty but God made me the way he wanted to. I know I am not the smartest person and I had to work hard for my grades but I am not dumb or stupid. I know that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior and he is the only that matters as he can see my heart .
