What makes David such a cool cat?

“One of Jesse’s sons from Bethlehem is a talented harp player. Not only that—he is a brave warrior, a man of war, and has good judgment. He is also a fine-looking young man, and the Lord is with him.” I Sam. 16:18

Since Saul was looking for a harp player, I get why Samuel put that first. But seems to me that the Lord being with David should be mentioned first, and certainly before the fact that he’s good looking. Kinda shallow, Samuel, just saying….

Lord, help me base my estimation of other people on Your priorities.
