A Good Name – Proverbs 22:1
Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.
A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
Now, that being said, please consider this …
Blessed are you when men hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.
Now, pause here for a moment. We just read “A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.” Yet, Yeshua just said we are blessed if our name is rejected as evil. He then continues…
Then a couple verses later he says…
Yeshua’s words make it clear. We shouldn’t focus on having a good name in the eye’s of everyone. The prophets only wanted to have a good name in the eyes of YHWH. Shouldn’t we be the same?
Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
