Three Men of Notable Reputation

Earning a good reputation isn’t easy, and being able to understand the pitfalls of your own reputation requires social insight and humility. Jesus affirms and wants to be known by people who see their own reputations and make efforts to be better than society expects them to be. Sometimes this means functioning honorably despite obvious limitations, and other times this means humbly caring for those society would allow you to ignore. Three men of notable reputations saw past their own status and had their spiritual eyes opened to Jesus, who valued and affirmed them as individuals independent of their social status.
