All That Matters is the Truth of God.
God is far more talented at seeing what men are than men are at pretending to be what they aren't.

Why Weepest Thou?
Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? —John 20:15
Had Mary only known and believed what the Lord Jesus had accomplished for her by his obedience unto death and resurrection from the dead the only tears that would have fallen from her eyes would have been tears of joy. The Lord Jesus died on Calvary’s tree to make atonement for her sins. He brought in everlasting righteousness for her by the sacrifice of himself. He abolished death for her, and there he stands, in the flesh, risen, and fully alive because he accomplished her justification. Rejoice, Mary! Don’t weep! Your sins are all gone, and God is satisfied. You are guiltless in Christ and forgiven in him. You were born in sin, but by Christ your Lord you are justified from all things, blameless, pure, and unreprovable in God’s sight. No wonder Jesus asked her, “Woman, why weepest thou?”
Jesus may very well ask you, mourning sinner, what he asked Mary on the morning of his resurrection: “Why weepest thou?” What is it that has you so distressed and worried? Why are you so anxious, fearful, and sad? Is it your sin? Cheer up—Christ put your sin away. Is it your unbelief? Confess it to him, and take courage. “If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.” Is it some sad failure on your part? Oh, brokenhearted believer, “lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees.” You may fail and fail often, but Jesus can never fail. Dry your eyes, and look up. Look up unto the hills from whence cometh your help. “[Your] help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.”
Though we weep now, there is coming a day when our God will wipe away all tears from our eyes. “And there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Oh, what a day of rejoicing that will be! No more failure. No more sin. No more unbelief. No more sad departures from our best and beloved Friend. No more foolishness. No more night. No more death. No more separation. No more fear. No more disappointment. We shall, children of God, each and every one of us, from the greatest to the least, behold the Lamb of God upon the throne—glorified, crowned with power, and clothed with majesty and honor. What a sight that will be! What a privilege! What a gift! What a God! What a great salvation!
