When I first started work in banking, loan officers reviewed credit bureaus and subjectively determined the borrower’s worthiness. Over time, the analysis became automated, resulting in the credit score.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the same thing is happening to our online reputations. Owen Tripp, co-founder of, says, “There will be a reputation score, and it will be used to make decisions about you.”

1 Timothy 3:7, speaking about potential leaders, says, “He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.”

True integrity is not just what you do at work. If you desire to be a respected leader, guard your reputation. Soon your entire life may be on display. It already is to God.
