We all have a reputation. You may not be striving to make a reputation for yourself, but you are. We may have a reputation for being kind, caring, loving or thoughtful. However, we can also have a reputation for being lazy, mean, hateful, etc. We have a good reputation with some people and a bad one with others. Does it matter? Yes, I believe our reputation is a huge factor to our success in this world. Remember, it's not what you know but who you know. That may not be fair, but it's a simple truth that we must live with. If your reputation is bad with most people, you're going to be in trouble when you need a favor. In church we have 3 different classes of people. Wishbones, jawbones & backbones. The wishbones are always hoping and dreaming the church will grow, but without their effort. The jawbones talk a big game, but do very little. The backbones are the ones who do all the work and keep the church strong. Which bone are you and what kind of reputation will you leave?
