Cultivating the Outward Appearance vs Cultivating the Heart

It is easy to get caught up in outward appearances. The world screams at us constantly to do just that – in advertisements, in social media posts, in the comparisons we feel with others, in news stories, in resumes, in more. The problem is when we pursue outward appearance in order to grasp at the approval of others. The problem is when we care more about cultivating them, than about cultivating our heart before God. Pastor Nicoletti preaches from 1 Samuel 16:1-23
