"When Jesus turned around
and noticed them following him,

This is from our Bible Study.
We are starting to read the book by Beth Moore titled
David - 90 Days With A Heart Like His .

'Do not judge from his appearance
or from his lofty stature,
because I have rejected him.
Not as man sees does God see,
because man sees the appearance
but the Lord looks into the heart.'"

What does the Lord see
when he looks into your heart?

who is seated on the throne,
and from the Lamb!'"
