Think about your reputation.
We’re supposed to walk worthy of our calling. It’s not an easy task, but it’s one we’ve been handed. God has called each of us uniquely and asked us to be part of his mission here on the earth and he then tells us to live like it.
When we’re selfish, and we’re pushing our own interests, the gospel looks anything but great. Because, like it or not, most people first interaction with the gospel is not a preacher, pastor, deacon, or Bible but a Christian God has put in their path.
Would the people around you look at your life and think it’s one focused on the kingdom? Would they look at your heart and think its one focused on eternity? Or would they see selfish acts, building your own kingdom?
Like Scripture says, make sure you walk worthy of the calling you’ve been given.
