OBEDIENCE – gives you a good reputation

Deuteronomy 4:
6 Obey them completely, and you will display your wisdom and intelligence among the surrounding nations. When they hear all these decrees, they will exclaim, ‘How wise and prudent are the people of this great nation!’ (New Living Translation)
Some people work hard to make others think they are smart. The books they carry and the facts they quote are impressive. But Moses said that a reputation for wisdom comes by obeying God’s Word.

This may not be the easiest or most glamourous way to earn a reputation, but it is the most authentic.

Do you fall into the trap of trying to makes others think you are intelligent because of what you know or pretend you know? Obeying God’s Word will give a far greater reputation, because it’s not just what you know, but what you do that counts.

Thank you. Be blessed!
