What Are You Most Ashamed Of? Or... What About Yourself Do You Most Want to Change?

Puritan writer and pastor Abraham Wright (1611–1690):
Many are ashamed to be seen as God made them;
few are ashamed to be seen what the devil hath made them.
Many are troubled at small defects in the outward man;
few are troubled at the greatest deformities of the inward man;
many buy artificial beauty to supply the natural;
few spiritual, to supply the defects of the supernatural beauty of the soul.
