What Does Your Reputation Say About You?

“If I take care of my character, my reputation will take care of me”–Dwight L. Moody.

“I remember being moved when I read the last will and testament of the late J. P. Morgan. He is noted as perhaps the most influential banker in history. I have often wondered about the reaction of his children when they read their father’s will after his death in 1913. I hope they sensed the power of his words and gained strength from them: ‘I commit my soul into the hands of my Saviour, in full confidence that having redeemed it and washed it in His most precious blood He will present it faultless before the throne of my Heavenly Father; and I entreat my children to maintain and defend, at any hazard, and at any cost of personal sacrifice, the blessed doctrine of the complete atonement for sin through the blood of Jesus Christ, once ordered, and through that alone’”–Billy Graham, Nearing Home, 68-69.

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9).

“Fallen man is not simply an imperfect creature who needs improvement: he is a rebel who must lay down his arms”–C.S. Lewis

“Whoever walks in integrity walks securely”–Proverbs 10:9.
