If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples, then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea, and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.
Sometimes our daily interactions with others are mostly superficial and our personal exchanges simulate commodity trades. Slow down, look around, try to truly engage others in a meaningful dialogue that will allow both of you to grow and benefit.
But the LORD said to Samuel: Do not judge from his appearance or from his lofty stature, because I have rejected him. God does not see as a mortal, who sees the appearance. The LORD looks into the heart.
1 Samuel 16:7
