Character vs. Reputation
Inspired by God
Written by Carl A Davenport

 

Would you rather be known for your good reputation or your outstanding character? These two words are used as interchangeable terms, but their meanings are a light year apart.

Your reputation is what man knows and judges you by. Your character is what God knows and judges you by.

Character is built by God when you are put into His fire for purifying. You will either grow or meltdown. If you grow, character is what you grow. Character is only given by God. Whenever you face what you feel is a huge challenge, ask God to build your character as you face the challenge.

Reputation is man's version of character. It is decided by how you successfully you perform according to the worldly standards. It is based solely on the worldly standards. It is a weak imitation of God's standards.

Worldly standards are the standards set by man and are built without any consideration of Godís law. They are made by man, for man. Man thinks he has control of the accountability for his actions if they are according to the world's standards. Worldly standards are approved by society. Man thinks he can escape the accountability to God by following society approved standards. Man fools only himself.

Leave your reputation with man. It does not matter what you do, or how well you perform. You will please some and disgust others. You will be persecuted.

Character is from God and reputation is from man. If you allow man to play God you will worry more about you reputation than your character. If you accept God, as God, you will concentrate more on your character, and your reputation will mean nothing to you.
