Reputation and the Bible

Good reputation is more valuable than wealth. "A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold." Proverbs 22:1, NIV.

Betraying confidences can give you a bad reputation. "If you argue your case with a neighbor, do not betray another man's confidence, or he who hears it may shame you and you will never lose your bad reputation." Proverbs 25:9-10, NIV.

What qualities guarantee a good reputation? "Humility and the fear of the Lord bring wealth and honor and life." Proverbs 22:4, NIV,

Kindness brings respect. "A kindhearted woman gains respect, but ruthless men gain only wealth." Proverbs 11:16, NIV.

It is valuable to have a reputation for skilled work. "Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will serve before kings; he will not serve before obscure men." Proverbs 22:29, NIV.




Definition of Reputation

1. the estimation in which a person or thing is held, esp. by the community or the public generally; repute: a man of good reputation.

2. favorable repute; good name: to ruin one's reputation by misconduct.

3. a favorable and publicly recognized name or standing for merit, achievement, reliability, etc.: to build up a reputation.

4. the estimation or name of being, having, having done, etc., something specified: He has the reputation of being a shrewd businessman.4     



Reputation is the opinion (more technically, a social evaluation) of the public toward a person, a group of people, or an organization. It is an important factor in many fields, such as education, business, online communities or social status.

Reputation is known to be a ubiquitous, spontaneous and highly efficient mechanism of social control in natural societies. It is a subject of study in social, management and technological sciences. Its influence ranges from competitive settings, like markets, to cooperative ones, like firms, organisations, institutions and communities. Furthermore, reputation acts on different levels of agency, individual and supra-individual. At the supra-individual level, it concerns groups, communities, collectives and abstract social entities (such as firms, corporations, organizations, countries, cultures and even civilizations). It affects phenomena of different scale, from everyday life to relationships between nations. Reputation is a fundamental instrument of social order, based upon distributed, spontaneous social control.9
