I know what your thinking.

 As I’ve made crystal clear many times, judging a book by its cover is foolish.

Only those exhibiting poor judgement and severely arrested emotional development make this mistake.

 Simpleminded snap judgements based on appearance damage depth of understanding.

Allowing our eyes to form the basis for discernment of valuable, constructive ideas is shallow.

Looking past the temporal and seeing the eternal in another is a supernatural gift.

 Determining the value in another’s character while overlooking the outer covering is gracious.

Recognizing the person is not the skin and bone, but rather a spiritual being whom resides therein, fosters an appreciation beyond looks that reflects a maturity seldom realized.

However, just because you’re not easy on the eyes doesn’t mean you don’t hold to some really, really bad ideas.
