Care more about the inside than the outside.

of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man
seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on
the heart.   1 Samuel 16.7

I am crucified with Christ.
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:
