Circumcised in Heart, Col 2:11

The outward behavior was never and is never God’s main goal for us. It is the heart. This is where the rules-based legalists who want to control others by constantly boycotting, changing laws, and the like miss the whole point. God wants our heart. We should interact with others at the level of the heart, not simply at their behavior. Not that behavior doesn’t matter; it does. But behavior comes from the heart. Worry about the root, and the leaf will follow.
