A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
Do we work as hard toward having a “good name” on a daily basis as we do to make sure that we are living comfortably & affording our desires?

He who loves a pure heart & whose speech is gracious will have the king for his friend.
How do our words come through? Do we speak with love & gentleness?
How do we accept advice from others? Does our pride get in the way or can we take it & use it to better ourselves?
Do not let your heart envy sinners, but always be zealous for the fear of the Lord.

For waging war you need guidance, & for victory many advisers.
