A REPUTATION FOR GIVING!

Reputation: A favorable and publicly recognized name, for merit, achievement, reliability, etc..

I try not to spend a life that is full of  “guess what I did.”

Our reputation is in the hands of others, that’s what a reputation is, something we can’t control.  “The only thing you can control is your character.”   Wayne W. Dyer

Everyone has a reputation, but its value depends on what others think.

Our reputation is something that sums up who we are, whether we are in favor of another opinion or not.  Still, we must be “fair and balanced”  to all.   You know, Do unto others as…

And he must have a good reputation with those outside the church so that he will not fall into reproach and the snare of the Devil.   1st Timothy 3:7

We all want the world to know when we have done something good and we want to be praised for it; But the bible says in Matthew 6:1-8

Beware of practicing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them; otherwise you have no reward with your father who is in heaven. “So when you give to the poor, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be honored by men truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.  “But when you give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving will be in secret.

And,  “A single lie destroys a whole reputation of integrity.”   Balthazar Grecian.  Tell me about that one.

In order to gain a good reputation you must be who you say you are. Our reputation can travel faster than we may think, especially with the help of the World Wide Web. One can survive everything nowadays, except death, and live down everything except a good reputation., achievement, and reliability.

Thank you Lord for your wisdom.  In Jesus name we pray.
