prestige?

17 Nevertheless, each person should live the kind of life that the Lord assigned when he called each one. This is what I teach in all the churches. 18 If someone was circumcised when called, he shouldn’t try to reverse it. If someone wasn’t circumcised when he was called, he shouldn’t be circumcised. 19 Circumcision is nothing; not being circumcised is nothing. What matters is keeping God’s commandments. 20 Each person should stay in the situation they were in when they were called. 21 If you were a slave when you were called, don’t let it bother you. But if you are actually able to be free, take advantage of the opportunity. 22 Anyone who was a slave when they were called by the Lord has the status of being the Lord’s free person. In the same way, anyone who was a free person when they were called is Christ’s slave. 23 You were bought and paid for. Don’t become slaves of people. 24 So then, brothers and sisters, each of you should stay with God in the situation you were in when you were called. (1 Corinthians 7:17-24, CEB)

We are slaves of God. We were bought with a price and should see that as love. And we should not be worried about our outward appearance, or that we have made the proper modifications to our bodies. Circumcision or being of a certain appearance doesn’t matter. It isn’t the cloak you wear, but the status of your heart.

God knows why you do the things you do, is it for the prestige or is it out of love of God and neighbor?

Set your heart on God and know you are beloved.
