When Opposite is actually the Same

This is just a quick note explaining the chart attached. Here is a list of physically opposites that are spiritually the sameTheir outside couldn't have been more opposite. Jesus was the only one who lived a flawless life in the flesh but the rest of these godly men on this list had their flaws. My hope is that after reading this, you will never look at people the same again.
Do you see what God sees? The only way we can see the heart of a person is to stop viewing or judging them based on the exterior physical attributes instead of their character. Let their overall character speak for itself and not a single action. What these men listed below have in common is a godly heart. A spirit and desire to stand for what is right regardless of their individual short-comings. They all saw wrong as wrong even when some were involved in despicable acts. David for example is a familiar story and he acknowledged his misdeeds and prayed a heart felt prayer for forgiveness. A prayer that became a song that many still sing today - "Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me." - Psalm 51:10.
