Philippians 2:1-4  -So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others
Ironically, it’s those who live for their own selfish pleasure that are constantly miserable.  In other words, we gain no real pleasure by seeking our own pleasure. 

Let us live our lives for others. Let us represent our Father.  Let us be known for our kindness and  generosity.  The definition of reputation is overall quality or character as seen or judged by people in general . 

If your going to be known for your reputation – make it a good one.
