I will list some verses and also a list of qualities that place a man (or woman) above reproach.
Reproach = The expression of disaproval or disappointment in someone .
To be found faultless, to be so garmented in goodness that fellow man can find no reproach with your approach, roaming, exit of doing things. Beginning, middle, end of your Godly example to others will show goodness, discipline, control, through witness, or, teaching, or, however the Lord sees you to do things.
Sounds like exhibiting the fruits of the Spirit , love, peace, longsuffering, self-control, kindness...?

Want to be in the will of God?? STRIVE to live your life--through God working in you--above reproach.
2 Philippians 2:13-15 -- For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation among whom you shine as lights in the world.
Ways of living above reproach, for your 'tongue' shall lead you:
Titus 2: 7-8 -- in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say to you.
