Trusting Your Reputation to God
Imagine Joseph’s quandary when he learned his betrothed, Mary, was pregnant. Joseph’s reputation, and even his carpentry business reputation, was at risk.
Everyone probably assumed Joseph had sexual relations with Mary prior to their formal wedding ceremony. Unless he divorced her, Joseph would live with a tarnished reputation.
Yet, the angel of the Lord instructed Joseph to marry her, despite the pregnancy. Joseph courageously chose to trust God with his own reputation and obey the angel, instead.
King David wrote in Psalm 41:12 says, “As for me, You uphold me in my integrity, and You set me in Your presence forever.”
There are times when no one but God knows that we are doing the right thing. In those times, are you willing to trust God with your reputation?
