A Great Reputation

In the last post, we see that King Saul is now tormented by an evil spirit.  As he casts about for a way to be soothed, he asks for a harp player – someone who plays well and who may ease his suffering.  And we read:

One of the servants answered, “I have seen a son of Jesse of Bethlehem who knows how to play the harp. He is a brave man and a warrior. He speaks well and is a fine-looking man. And the LORD is with him.”   — 1 Samuel 16:18

I cannot help but think how desirable this reputation would be to have.  When people describe me to others, do they include the words “and the Lord is with him”?  How must I change in order for that to start happening?
