Lesson 22: “The Lord Looketh on the Heart”

Gospel Doctrine Lesson 22 presents students with an invitation to see others in the way God sees them, by looking carefully at the human soul rather than a person’s physical appearance.  The lesson title derives from the story of the anointing of David as king over Israel, when the Lord declared unto the prophet Samuel,"Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but th … [Read more...]
