Guarding One's Good Name

What's in a name? A great deal.

A good name is precious. More than an identification tag, in its fullest sense—and as the word is commonly used in the Bible—a name designates the entire individuality of a person: his character, capability, and the extent of his spiritual strength. It conjures up an entire portrait of the individual—not merely what he looks like physically, but what he mentally is, what he does, and how he does it; whether he is to be trusted or not; whether he is desirable as a friend or one to be avoided.
