The Weekly Word - A Devotion for the Week of November 29

Nov 24, 2021

It’s easy to make a snap judgment based on extrinsic qualities. We might judge the person holding the cardboard sign on the street corner as “lazy” or “useless,” while we deem the CEO “important” or “successful.” But God knows there is much more to us than that which can be seen on the outside. He looks into our hearts, where compassion, generosity, kindness, faith and love live.
