Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 77

A Good Name

Proverbs 22:1, Psalm 45:17

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

As a young believer in Jesus Christ, one of the first scriptures that spoke to me was Proverbs 22:1. “A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches; and loving favor, rather than silver and gold.” What does it mean to have a good name? Does it involve being wealthy and prosperous? Famous? Powerful? Actually, having a good name comes from being a person of integrity – one who upholds the truth and does good to others. All of these qualities are found in Jesus Christ. That’s why the writer of Psalm 45:17 said, “I will make your name to be remembered in all generations; therefore, shall the people praise you forever and ever.”
