Proverbs gives an awesome insight of what wisdom brings us, when we apply her to our lives.
Thoughts and words are not enough in this life. The actions that loyalty and kindness brings, is shown in this passage through our reputation.
The actions we show to others, are generally birthed out of our attitudes and in the NIV the words for wisdom here are LOVE and FAITHFULNESS.
Love, loyalty, kindness and faithfulness are mostly found from the fruit of the spirit in Galatians 5:22-23.
Therefore, it is a great reminder that a good reputation comes from living right with God – which brings both favour from both people and God Himself.
Plus, if this is tied to us or located deep within our heart, it is something that we shouldn’t forget.
