The message this morning entitled, "The power of a good name" was was born when I heard the story of what happened when one of my boys went to a department store to return an item without a receipt. He wanted wanted them to issue him a gift card. The lady told him they would not be able to do that because she had no proof he had bought the item from that store. Then she recognized the last name on his drivers license. She called the manager and told him even though the boy had no receipt, she knows the family and recognized the name on his drivers license. She said if this boy said he bought the item here, then he did. The manager said that was good enough for him and let her issue the gift card. This is indeed, the power of a good name!
