A Good Reputation

Scripture

“A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, and favor is better than silver or gold.”  Proverbs‬ ‭22:1‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Observation

A good name or reputation is better than riches; and favor is better than silver or gold. 

Application

A good reputation takes consistency and time to develop. As we live our lives before others and reveal our true character then we begin to build a reputation and an outward image to those around us. Of course true character is developed from inward strength and commitment. When we live consistency before others over time then a reputation is developed. As Proverbs states, this reputation is better then obtaining quick riches which may cause a questionable character.  Let us seek the consistent reputation of one who remains true to the cause and character of Christ. 

Prayer

Lord, may I find favor in your eyes which is more valuable than silver or gold. May my consistent walk reveal a godly reputation before others.
