I'm back! I apologize for the break since Thanksgiving!
Kerb Appeal

Real estate agents point to the importance of kerb appeal when selling a home.
I guess if the inside of the home is as appealing as the externals, then it makes sense.
I wonder how this applies to human relationships; are looks more important than what is in the heart? I wonder if the reason for the high divorce rates in our country is due to the fact that most people select a mate based on their initial attraction. Often all it takes is one look, and then they are hooked! If other decisions in life are made based on “kerb appeal” it could also explain the
fiscal state we are in. I see, I like, I buy! The next time you are tempted to make a major decision based merely on “eye candy,” think again and go back to God’s counsel to the prophet Samuel;

But God told Samuel, "Looks aren't everything. Don't be impressed with his looks and stature. I've already eliminated him. God judges persons differently than humans do. Men and women look at the face; God looks into the heart." 1 Samuel 17:7 (Msg)
