Titus 1:12 NASB "One of them, a prophet of their own, said, “Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.”"While having coffee with a friend, a man came up who knew the guy I was having coffee with. As my friend introduced us, he said "hey, you're the guy who..."! Today's verse shares what they thought of Cretans, and let's just say it's not a glowing review! The man I had just met had heard of me, had known some things about me and I had to wonder, what is my reputation? Did you ever wonder what people are saying about you? I pray that they don't use words like "liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons!" but the reality of today is that many of us men fit into one of those groups where our reputation is less than favorable. I wonder, when we are dead and gone, how will we be remembered? We can do something about that by living for Christ today and that means getting off our good intentions! The question is, what are people saying about us and how we live? peace, tom
