“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
Today’s Morsel: What comes to your mind when you hear of certain people’s names? We either determine a person's good or evil by their name. Even children associate bullies by their name. Our name says a lot about who we are. King Solomon admonishes, “A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.” (Proverbs 22:1) “Because character will support a man in many circumstances; and there are many rich men that have no name: but the word of the man of character will go farther than all their riches.”( Adam Clark Commentary) Protect the integrity of your name, it carries great value in what people think of you.
Sing: Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! There’s just something about that name. Master! Savoir! Jesus! Like the fragrance after the rain. Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! Let all heaven and earth proclaim. Kings and kingdoms shall all pass away, but there is something about that name.
Thought For Today: “Don’t let your good be evil spoken of.”
