Five Foot Three

Reg Grant on October 13, 2009 in DTS Devotional

John Wesley was a giant among preachers. His eyes flashed and his voice, we are told, thundered in his sermons. I imagined him to be like King Saul or Eliab, David’s brother, tall and imposing. And yet he stood only five feet three inches tall and weighed a mere 128 pounds. “But the LORD said to Samuel, ‘Don’t be impressed by his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. God does not view things the way men do. People look on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.’” (1Sam. 16:7) God measures a man’s stature not by height, but by heart.
