A verse in the Bible says man looks at the outside but God looks at the inside. The truth of that verse is demonstrated in our everyday lives. Often man looks on the surface, what we eat, what to wear, how we look like while very few look or think about the condition of his or her soul.
If we look at our soul we will live life in view of eternity. We will make sure that we are right before God. Even though the Bible says we are saved by grace through faith , it is a gift of God not of works lest anyone will boast. The Bible says anyone who names the name of God should depart from iniquity or sin.
