Character is the one thing we make in this world and take with us into the next. ( William Hershey Davis, seminary professor)

Davis continues, “Reputation is what you have when you come to a new community; Character is what you have when you go away.” Reputation may precede you; people may have heard about you, so they have an idea of what you’re like. But after you’ve been around a while, your real character becomes known. Live in such a way that people will honor your memory.

May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ. (Philippians 1:11)
