Real Or Fake?

After having painted the front of our storage building, I thought it would be nice to have a window box underneath the window. It would spruce up the otherwise plain, boring facade and give something interesting to look at.

We found a planter which was just the right size and bought a few flowers to go in it. It was up in no time and I was very pleased with the result. It had the desired effect.

When the yardman cut our grass yesterday, he mentioned how perfect those plants looked. He thought they looked too perfect to be real and he even felt them to ensure those were real plants. He had a hard time believing they were fake.

Yes, it may be hard to believe, but they are fake. You really have to examine them closely though to determine whether they are or not. They will tell the tale over time when they are neither growing nor withering, but stay green and blooming during winter.

Appearances may be deceiving and we may not always be able to look beyond them. However, God can, will and does!

1 Samuel 16:7
But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."
