Standing Tall, Falling Hard
1 Samuel 15:20-23
God delights in the obedience of those who stand on the sacrifice He provides.
But the Lord said to Samuel, "Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart."
-1 Samuel 16:7
