BIBLICAL REFLECTION:

Do not look at the Beast on the outside, but to the inner Beauty of the heart.

1 Samuel 16:7- But God told Samuel, “Looks aren’t everything. Don’t be impressed with his looks and stature. I’ve already eliminated him. God judges persons differently than humans do. Men and women look at the face; God looks into the heart."
