In the Word - Don't Judge a Book

It has often been said that we should not judge a book by its cover. Yet how often do we judge people by appearances? Many “unlikely” people have come to faith in God—a number of whom are mentioned in the Bible. As we respond to the great commission given by Jesus, it’s important that we see every person as a potential citizen of God’s eternal kingdom.
