God’s Reputation

God was justifiably angry when His people worshiped a golden calf.  He wanted to destroy them. But Moses prayed: “Why should the Egyptians say, “With evil intent did he bring them out, to kill them? . . . and God relented of the disaster he had spoken of (Exodus 32:12-14).

We who bear Christ’s name can implore the Lord to keep his reputation untarnished, even when we sin.
