Don’t Make The Man

Sometimes the clothes don’t make the man. — Anon and song lyric.

I expect the above applies to women as well. It’s an expression that emphasizes that outward appearances, don’t always tell the whole story.

What is more important — to dress to the nines or be rich in spirit? I don’t think it was by accident that Jesus came to us as a carpenter, rather than as the son of a King. There is nothing wrong with owning a nice suit and shined shoes, but a kind heart, soft manner, and ear for listening speak to what kind of man/woman you are.

One’s heart and soul make the man/woman, not one’s clothes.
