A man of good report

“Demetrius hath good report of all men, and of the truth itself; yea, and we also bear record; and ye know that our record is true.” (3 John 12).

John the Beloved wrote to let us know that Brother Demetrius was a serious brother. He said Demetrius had a good report of all men. Everyone had something good to say about him. He is the kind of student parents love to have as their own. Teachers love him and fellow students admire him as well.

If Demetrius were here today what kind of person would he be? Firstly, you will find Demetrius to be a truly born again child of God. He will be fervent and useful in the church and school fellowship.

Demetrius is not a secret disciple. He is not ashamed to be called a child of God and so you will see him helping others to become better Christians.

Thirdly Demetrius will not owe anyone money. He does not spend money lavishly. He is a planner and so he would not spend all his pocket money within two weeks of resumption in school.

Fourthly you will find Demetrius to be a brilliant student academically. He knows how to study hard and work smart. No matter what we think of Demetrius he is much more!

The question then is what are you doing about your life? Do you have a good report of other people? May God grant you wisdom to do something good about your skill to obtain good report.

Challenge: When you live right many people will notice you

Prayer: Help me Lord to please You in all I do today.
