My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live. (KJV)
It only takes a moment to build a reputation but it takes a lifetime to build character. You can do one thing that stands out, good or bad, and all of a sudden you have a label that sticks with you for quite some time. But for people to really see you for who you are takes time, like building trust. Rome was not built in a day and the same applies to building one’s character and reputation. Stay strong in God’s Word and eventually others will come to know you and to appreciate who you are.
Our Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this day and all of Your blessings in our lives. Abba Lord, have Your Holy Spirit guide us through life and continually remind us to pay attention to our conduct so as to leave a favorable impression on others. Have us adopt the character of our Lord Jesus and hold fast to His teachings. May our conduct be a testimony of our faith and inspire others to follow in His footsteps.
We lift our prayers up to You in the Name of Your Son, Jesus the Christ…Amen.
Good morning to one and all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours for a safe and wonder-filled day.
May God Bless,
