The Heart of the Matter - 1 Samuel 16:1-23

The theme of 1 Samuel 16 is that God has superior eyesight. He is not limited to physical 20/20 vision, which can hinder one from seeing reality. It is very difficult to see things the way God sees things. He sees all things and all people in the true light of His own will and purposes. The whole world looks very different from that perspective. Therefore, it is critical to see as God sees. 1. God chooses David (16:1-13). 2. Saul chooses David (16:14-23).
