“You yourselves are our letter of recommendation, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone.” 2 Corinthians 3:2
While endorsements and recommendations are helpful, they do not work all of the time because the life you live may not match the endorsements and recommendations. Therefore your primary endorsement is the reflection of the life you live. You may be surprise to know who is watching you and the things people know about you but you don’t think they know.
One of the reasons why some people reject some people including Christian people is because they know the life that some of these people are portraying is contrary to the life they are living.
During the elections campaign in the United States and in the Turks and Caicos Islands, there were endorsements by “prominent” people but those endorsements did not secure seats for some individuals because people knew better. They knew some things about the life of the endorsers and the endorsees.
You are the endorsement for yourself
Sometimes people have a hidden agenda and do a lot of things in the public to get what they desire. However, it may work for a period of time but your life will reflect who you really are. You are not alone in this world. Many of you may have a job or had a job and your co-workers know who you are. All of you have a family and your family knows the kind of person you are. You friends know who you are. Therefore when an opportunity arises for you, you do not need to get someone to endorse you. The life you live will reflect that.
You see in 2 Corinthians 3, the life of Paul was reflected in the work he did in his ministry. He did not need letters of recommendations. His life was evident.
What about you? Do you need endorsements to get what you want? Quite frankly, people will talk about you. If you are good, people will talk good about you. If you do bad things, people will talk bad about you. If people are talking good about you all of the time, that in itself is a positive endorsement. Now if people are talking bad about you, this is when a lot of people look for others to endorse them and when they do get the endorsements, people are surprise because the endorsements do not reflect the person the endorser describe.
Always be kind, positive and good to others. Always imagine that someone is watching you and always feel that one day you will need help from others. If you live according to this, then you will live a great life and a life that does not need any public endorsement.
