Mathew 6:1-6,16-18
What good is it if the whole world thinks I am an honest person, but I know myself to be a liar? What is the purpose of projecting the image of a faithful husband and loving father, a faithful wife and loving mother when deep in your heart you know it is not true? Good reputation and good character are not synonymous terms. Reputation is only what people think you are; character is what you know you are.
