Character & Reputation

“Reputation is the celebrity we admire in the mirror. Character is the person who follows us everywhere. Reputation is our public image—what we want others to think. Character is our secret actions, words, and thoughts—what we really are. Mathematically speaking, reputation is character minus the flaws we try to hide. We often mar our character by protecting our reputation, but God builds our character by smashing our reputation. Let’s allow the Holy Spirit to do His transforming work on our character, for when character is developed, reputation takes care of itself.” -Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
