Scripture Reading

Proverbs 11:3, 5

Lesson 6: The Wisdom of a Good Reputation

Godly wisdom and self-discipline help us to be distinctive in the world. God wants his children to cultivate a reputation for being godly (1 Peter 2:11-15). He also cares about our character. His plan for us does not include hypocrisy; He wants us to practice what we preach. Consequently, we find that the book of Proverbs encourages us to consider the wisdom of having a good reputation. God wants our character and our reputation to reflect His character and repuation.[1]

Questions for LifeGroup Leaders:


Note(s) to LifeGroup Leaders:

  • Please read most of the commentary to your LifeGroup. You may summarize it if necessary, but there is nothing wrong with reading it. If you are a husband and wife team leading, perhaps take turns reading to the group. There is valuable review of the Scripture passages and application for effective discussion. Use your LifeGroup members to read Scripture.
  • The “Making It Personal” section is not designed for group discussion. These are questions that you might use to conclude before prayer. They are questions that prompt personal conviction and application. Please use them at your discretion to help your group.
