Proper 6/Ordinary 11 – 1 Samuel 16:11-12

From 1 Samuel 16:11-12 – Samuel said to Jesse, “Are all your sons here?” And he said, “There remains yet the youngest, but he is keeping the sheep.” And Samuel said to Jesse, “Send and bring him; for we will not sit down until he comes here.” He sent and brought him in. Now [David] was ruddy, and had beautiful eyes, and was handsome. The LORD said [to Samuel], “Rise and anoint him; for this is the one.”

From the group Five Man Electrical Band’s song Signs:

And the sign said long haired freaky people need not apply.
So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why.
He said you look like a fine upstanding young man, I think you’ll do.
So I took off my hat I said imagine that, huh, me working for you?

Prayer:

Loving God, we are superficial people, sometimes by accident but sometimes on purpose. Help us look beyond the surface in all who come before us today. AMEN.
