Your Name Has Value

Audio / Produced by The High Calling


Armstrong Williams was feeling blue. His father had sent him to town for wire and fencing for their farm. But on this trip, he would also have to ask for credit.

He'd seen other boys ask for credit. They'd hang their heads while the store owner questioned if they were good for it. At the store counter, Armstrong said, "I need to put this on credit."

The farmer next to Armstrong smirked. But the store owner didn't smirk. He said, "Sure. Your daddy is always good for it."

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. That day, Armstrong learned his father's reputation and the value of a good name. A good name is worth respect . . . and sometimes it's worth outright capital . . . in the high calling of our daily work.

O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
(Ps. 8:9)
