REPUTATION CHARACTER

REPUTATION is what

others think of you.

CHARACTER is what

God knows about you.

"For as a man thinks in his heart, so he is..." (NKJV) As in water face reflects face, so a mans heart reveals the man.

But the Lord said to Samuel, Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.

* What we do when

no one is around and when no one will found out?

Private life should be consistent with public life.

* How do we react to

the best and/or worst of circumstances?

Problems, trials, pressures, persecutions and trying situations are designed to squeeze out our true character.
