Reputation

Today's reading: Genesis 23:1-20

After giving birth to Isaac and then training, teaching and raising him to manhood, Sarah dies at the ripe old age of 127. Because Abraham is in a foreign country, he must secure land on which to bury Sarah. So he approaches the Hittites to finding a suitable piece of property, and is met with an outpouring of friendship and love by those whom he has lived among for many years. The interaction between Abraham and the Hittites is beautiful, and immediately results in Abraham securing the exact place he had selected for Sarah to be buried. The Hittites respect and admire Abraham for how he has conducted himself in the years he's lived, worked and raised his family in their country. Abraham was truly a living testimony for God, and his upright living was evident to and noticed by the Hittites.

What does being a "living testimony for God" mean for you personally? Do you have a reputation for being upright--doing what's right, helping people, speaking kind words, responding wisely? What does this account reveal about the value of our reputation? Tami
