This week, we’ve been reading about selection processes and placing people in jobs.
For millennia, humankind has made decisions about who gets elevated to high positions and who does not. Often, in our world, the most privileged, beautiful or wealthy get picked over those who do not stand out in these ways. But what does God have to say about all of this?
In 1 Samuel chapter 16, the prophet Samuel looked at a man called Eliab and concluded “Surely the LORD’s anointed stands here before the LORD.” But scripture records that “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.”
For this week’s post, let’s respond to this question: If we are in charge of hiring or promoting employees for our organization, how do we do so in a way that reflects God’s heart toward all of us as He evaluates our hearts?
