We worry so much about how pretty our forms are, whether we are wearing the right makeup and fashionable clothes. We also are concerned about how tight our abs are, and how good we look from behind.

Wanting to be fit and healthy is well and fine, but many of us make the mistake of being more concerned about how others see our physical entities rather than giving careful consideration to what type of example our words and actions may reveal to those around us.

A model may have stunningly good looks, but when dealing with people she may be self-centered and thoughtless.

The man in the three-piece business suit who seems externally well-polished may also be cheating on his wife and neglecting his children. So too, the seemingly sweet mother-in-law may have a sharp and vulgar tongue behind closed doors.

Yes, people are watching, but not just at how our external facades appear. They also witness the true contents of our character. Just because someone has not brought your attention to a character flaw, does not mean such weaknesses do not exist. Even when you think no one is around, God is ever-present and all-knowing, and there is no fooling the King of kings and Lord of lords.

Today, won't you ponder making the change from unrighteousness to righteousness? God is watching and waiting for you.
