What God sees and what man sees

But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7

Men saw whited sepulchres; God saw dead-men’s bones Matthew 23:27.

Men saw two mites; God saw all her living Mark 12:42-44.

Men saw someone who tithes, fasts, and keeps the law; God saw a self-righteous sinner Luke 18:9-12

Men saw a vile publican; God saw an opportunity for His mercy Luke 18:9-14.

Men saw the waste of ointment; God saw an act of worship Mark 14:2-9.

Men saw unlearned and ignorant men; God saw tools meet for the Master’s use Acts 4.
