Perceptions

Curosity

I Samuel 16:7b For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

How do I see you, how do you see me, how do others see us? The one is caring and feeding his personal pet and the other is thinking of who knows what, but, is ready to crumble a piece of food to throw to the birds. I was sitting on a bench just across from them maybe three meters away and watched them for probably about ten minutes as they each went about the business at hand. They did not speak to each other and it was obvious they did not know each other but just happened to occupy the same bench for a few moments of time. Of course, the Lord is looking at all our hearts too as we sat and pondered each other and the various perceptions we each had. I wonder what conclusion He came to about each one of us?
