Day 38 – 40 Days of the Shofar

How often do people judge a book by its cover? When God was going to pick a king, the prophet came and Jesse brought out all the good looking sons, the muscular sons and the educated sons. He didn’t even think to bring in David, the son that God had chosen. There is a well-known fictional story about a couple who wanted to donate money to an East Coast university. When the board saw the man wearing bib overalls and his wife in a shabby dress, they said, ‘Oh no, go away." So the "farmers" went out and founded their own university. They named it after their son, Stanford. The board members only saw the outward appearance. They never knew, until it was too late, that the couple was worth a fortune! While the story is fiction, it is a great illustration.
