He will bring forth your righteousness as the light and your judgment as the noonday (Psalms 37:6 NASB).
The great commentator Matthew Henry once wrote, “If we are careful to keep a good conscience, we may leave it to God to take care of our reputation.” We get it wrong. We have a tendency to try and maintain our reputation and are tempted to do things that defile our conscience. Henry goes further and says, “he will make it clear that you are honorable, and that is honor enough“. If for some sovereign reason God does not share that honor broadly, as long as you and God know, that is always enough. You and Him are always a majority.
