A Good Reputation and the Favor of God [Proverbs 3:4]

God's Wisdom For Today

Jul 15 2020 • 12 mins

"You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do" - Henry Ford

“As Christians, our number-one priority is to represent Christ well to this lost and broken world (Acts 1:8). Because Jesus is honest, kind, loyal, and honorable, we should strive to be those things as well (Ephesians 5:1), and all of those qualities contribute to a good reputation. People evaluate the worthiness of our message based on our reputations as people of character. If we have poor reputations, our message is tainted as well. Dishonesty, gossip, and hypocrisy damage our testimonies and do not reflect the character of Jesus. Many will not heed our words when our reputations do not match what we claim to believe.”


Today’s Scripture: Proverbs 3:4.

So you will find favor and good success

in the sight of God and man.  (ESV)


Earn a reputation for living well

in God’s eyes and the eyes of the people. (MSG)


Other verses mentioned in the episode:

“But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.” (Genesis 6:8)


A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,

and favor is better than silver or gold. (Proverbs 22:1)


Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and all the people. (Luke 2:52)
