Jack’s Winning Words 9/23/16
“A reputation of a thousand years may depend upon the conduct of a single moment.”  (Ernest Bramah)  A TV ad promises a prize of $7000 a week for life.  Just think about what that could do for you.  There’s a modern translation of Proverbs 22:1 which reads, “A good name is more valuable than winning the Publishers Clearing House prize.”  Having and maintaining a good reputation is a “value” worth discussing in the home and in the workplace.    ;-)  Jack

FROM TARMART REV:  The old mind picture we have used for many, many years--"There are no U-Hauls seen towed by the hearse to the cemetery!"====JACK:  Even the best reputation is "as filthy rags" before the Final Judgment.  We are saved by grace alone, through faith...not by good deeds or a good reputation.

FROM OJ:  Our family has been completed destroyed by one small incident.  We will get through this but it will take years.  We have great faith in a loving forgiving Lord but reputations may be ruined for generations.====JACK:  David is one example.  Saul who became a Saint is another..
