A good name can generate more power than all the hot air in Washington. In 1878, thirty-one year old Thomas Edison announced he would try to invent an electric light bulb. His reputation was such that, just on the basis of his announcement, illumination-gas stocks took a nosedive in New York and London. “A good name is to be chosen rather than great wealth, good favor more than silver or gold.” (Prov. 22:1) The difference between a man who says he can and a man who can is the difference between a man with a bright idea and an actual light bulb. Do what you say, and earn a great name.
