“Choose a good reputation over great riches; being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold.” Proverbs 22:1 NLT
One of my life’s goals is to be respected most by those who know me best. In bedded in that statement is having a good reputation. A good reputation has little to do with our possessions or savings accounts. Who you are and what you do is far more important than what you have.
While a good reputation might not be about what we have, it just might be about what we give.
I’m not speaking about giving money; but rather giving love, time, encouragement, prayer, and wise counsel to those around us.
Maya Angelo once said that; “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
This week, build a fine reputation but helping people to feel loved.
