Our body is made up of various parts all playing a role in our wellbeing and existence.
When one part suffers, the whole body suffers, so we cannot degrade or simply forget about even the least part (1 Corinthians 12:21). However it is true that it is the brain or mind that regards each part—the individual parts know nothing, they simply transmit messages to the brain or the mind.
We seem attracted by appearances. A wonderful hairstyle or terrific looks impact the way we think about people. The real person, however, is not in the hair or in the appearance. There may be a reflection of some of the real values the person has in the way they care for their appearance, but the real person is a complex grouping of all sorts of hidden things. We all need to realize that there is a brain under the hair and a heart underneath the good looks. The most important part is the character of the person that is made up by the quality of the mind. Look deeper for the real person.
