Proverbs 22:1 says, A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold. What does your name represent? Does it represent character and integrity? Does someone cringe when they mention or hear your name? Your name is all you have. You are judged by your name. Your name not only speaks volumes, but it represents your family (wife, children, and relatives). Your name will outlast any material resource (money, cars, job, home, etc.). Just as you build your name, it can be disgraced in a split second. Look at the infamous people on the list who have blemished their name for life. The next time you are in the heat of a battle, think about whether that action will disgrace your name. You may think it’s only for a little while, but you have to deal with it for life. Your name will shape the destiny and direction of your child. The label on a child can be more damaging. Now your child has to maneuver life and accept the consequences of your actions. They had nothing to do with your choices, but they may have to deal with your actions for a lifetime.
