What covered the body was tattered and torn. You could see the markings and feel the scars. You looked and wondered if there is anything left, but something told you to keep looking within. Yes, it was falling apart, but the soul of it was still strong from within.
I am talking about a Bible that is falling apart, pages torn, tattered, written on and more. No matter how the cover looks, you can still receive a lot from within it pages.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
You know this also reminds me of how the older generation is looked at.
Some have been through a lot, like that Bible, they may be tattered, torn and even at times fell apart but despite all that many still have a lot to offer. Like wisdom, knowledge and many other things. So no matter how the outside of the person looks, do what the Lord does…..He looks at the heart.
1 Samuel 16:7 The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.
