Skin Deep Beauty

Whenever I begin to fall into vanity, admiring the beauty of my face and body, I imagine that my outward appearance is a direct reflection of my inward appearance in the eyes of God. Then I instead see a mutilated face and body, one too disgusting and pitiful to look at. I realize what is more important, that what God sees is much more important than what man sees. If only I spent as much time focusing on my inward appearance as I did my outward appearance, then I would be able to look in the mirror, imagine what God sees when He peers into my soul, and be satisfied with what I see rather than appalled.
