Treasures in Ecclesiastes -Part 4: Morning Musing Over Coffee

A good name is better than fine perfume.
Ecclesiastes 7:1

I am reminded of this verse often when making decisions. The value of a good name cannot be discounted as I have learned (sometimes the hard way) and a good reputation often makes life much smoother! Of course, there are times when what others look favorably on and what we know God is asking of us are two different things. In those times it is much more important to do what we know He is asking and we can be sure He will handle the outcome. But other times it is up to us to be wise in how we conduct ourselves and the decisions we make, knowing that our name is at stake. This is not to say that we live in fear of what others think, but simply that we use wisdom in each moment.
