A good name is better than precious ointment.

Ecclesiastes 7:1

As believers–our reputation speaks volumes about our lives and how we live. Obviously, not everyone is going to like nor appreciate us. That’s a given. However, we must focus on the fact that we are Christ’s ambassadors on this earth. What we say or do reflects the kingdom of God. Our words and actions are either drawing people to want to know God or keeping them away from Him.

We aren’t going to be perfect people. Our goal is to mature in our faith every single day. We shouldn’t be exactly in the same place that we were last year about this time. We learn in 2 Corinthians 3:18 that we are being transformed “from one degree of glory to another”. We reflect this glory from God to our families, co-workers, neighbors, and anywhere we find ourselves.


Dear Lord, help me to always keep in mind Who I represent every day. Give me to live a righteous life that brings the aroma of peace in Christ Jesus. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
