It is usually a bad idea to judge a book by its cover. However, that doesn’t stop people from doing so anyway. The Bible says, “For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart,” (1 Samuel 16:7 ESV). We understand that God is a spirit, and we must worship him in spirit and in truth. In some ways, our physical characteristics and appearances do not matter to God; however, ignoring physical appearances would be foolish. Settle heart issues with your God, but act appropriately in front of others.
You will be addressed based on how you appear, and there is nothing you can do about it. To ascend the Lord’s Holy Hill, you must have clean hands and a pure heart. To ascend the social ladder, you must have clean and ironed clothes. It is unrealistic to believe that all tattoo enthusiasts are irresponsible and stupid. Nonetheless, some people will judge and crucify you for having tattoos. A tattoo is just a means of expressing oneself. It is not your tattoo that determines whether you are holy or unholy. However, such facts are irrelevant.
People look at your outward appearance. You must be aware of your public image and perception as you watch over your world. Do not overdo it; your sense of humility and modesty should not fade with time. However, be aware that if you present yourself to humans in a certain way, you are more likely to be misunderstood. Discipline yourself to dress in a way that people associate with the image you want to project to the world. Train yourself to speak in a way that people associate with the image you want to project to the world.
