Don’t call attention to yourself; let others do that for you. A sterling reputation is better than striking it rich. Earn a reputation for living well in God’s eyes and the eyes of the people.
Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Do you want to be counted wise, to build a reputation for wisdom? Here’s what you do: Live well, live wisely, live humbly. It’s the way you live, not the way you talk that counts.
Proverbs 27:2 ~ Proverbs 22:1 ~ Proverbs 3:4-5 ~ James 3:13
