Reputation is what others choose to believe about you as truth.
Reality is what God knows about you as a matter of fact.
Remember, men once believed the world was flat. God created the world and upon hearing the news, flat out laughed.
Reputation is based on what others think about you. Reality is based on what God knows about you.
One is tainted with lies. The other is wrapped with unfailing love.
One holds grudges. The other provides a way of escape from your past.
One holds you captive by death with no hope for reconciliation. The other provides the freedom of new life through redemption.
Live in the light of his love today. It will do your heart, mind and soul a world of good!
And that’s a fact Jack!
