STOP AND THINK – A single newspaper report gives your Reputation; a life of toil gives you your Character. (William Hershey Davis, Welsh poet and writer)

Your so-called “15 minutes of fame” will establish some kind of reputation for you. Whether it’s an article in the daily news or a TV report, people will think they know you on the basis of what they’ve read or seen. But that may not represent the real you, the person whose character has been established over a long period of faithfulness and integrity.

Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. (Proverbs 3:3)
