Good name is better than riches: Mother who delivered names bouncing baby boy after Dombouya
The holy book says in proverbs in Proverbs 22:1 that “A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.” Your reputation is typically earned by the decisions you repeatedly make.
Having an excellent reputation is better than lots of money in the bank and a big house. Don’t value getting things at the expense of your reputation.
It’s better people talk about what a great human you are rather than how much stuff you’ve accumulated.
People value who you are above all other things. Who cares what you have, if you have a reputation worth emulating.
As we journey every day of our life and in the route of our journey, we encounter people of different background and character.
