Read 1 Samuel 16. Its time for a new king because Saul is out of control. The Lord sends Samuel to Beth- lehem to find and anoint the next king. The shepherd boy whom God has chosen is quite a surprise - not only to his family but to the experienced prophet as well!
God has given us gifts and talents He will use for Kingdom purposes. We must not let our shortcomings determine if we are ready or not. Let us only ensure our heart is fully committed to saying yes to God. We must be careful to not judge anyone based solely on outward appearances.
Heavenly Father, I pray You will use me to speak encouragement to others and to uplift them.
