THE TRUTH IS — A GOOD NAME on this earth is more precious than any material object known. Prov. 22:1; Ecc. 7:1 – yet even, from an Eternal standpoint, the day of death is better than the day of birth. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints – Psalms 116:15, because all sin and sorrow are gone and only blessed joy forevermore. Only a born-again Child of God can comprehend this scenario, and yet they need Gospel Knowledge herein. Further, from a natural Point of view – the carnal fallen Adamic attitude is that of having YOUR NAME on some national and public place such as a Library, Bridge, Building, Lake, River, House, Barn, whatever – Psalms 49:11-14. Our natural nature loves to be bragged upon.
