Walking down the street,with an anointing oil in his horn to Jesse’s house, planning to anoint the next king of Israel, the one to take charge of Israel’s affairs, prophet Samuel anticipated the task before him, wondering on whom the kingship would fall on among Jesse’s children.
Then, Jesse presenting his sons before the man of God and lo beholding Eliab the first son, he said; ‘surely the Lord’s anointed is before him’ but God said to him hold your peace, do not look at the appearance or stature for I the Lord do not consider this. And Jesse presented seven of his sons before the prophet but none did God choose from them and Samuel asked; Are these all children? And Jesse said: there remains one, the youngest, a shepherd, tending to my flocks and Samuel said: fetch him. As David approaches, looking rough and without a beautiful countenance to look on, the Lord said to Samuel; Arise, anoint him: for he is the one. What a choice!
Samuel had intended to anoint Eliab who was good in appearance and well qualified for that position but God said: “No, I look at the heart and not the physical appearance”. Here is my choice; the youngest, one looked down on, left to tend the sheep all alone in the field, considered to be immature and inexperienced. So funny, God chooses the foolish things of this world to confound the wise and the weak things to confound the things that are mighty.1st Corinthians 1:27(NKJV)
