A good reputation comes with responsibility
In our lives as we go through the process of recovery people are watching us. At work, at home, in social circles we mix in, in small groups. Always on display! When we live our lives in obedience to God’s Word we don’t need to live in pretence. Knowing His Word gives us confidence and we can be comfortable being ourselves.
A good reputation comes with responsibility to serve God and others. In my own life I constantly find myself in God created situations. Situations where I must step up and do things that sometimes are uncomfortable, costly or painful. But, I would not change it for anything. Today because of the Holy Spirit in my life I am also not ashamed to admit what I don’t know or can’t do . God doesn’t want us to be perfect, just available.
