REPUTATION. . . . . 1 Chronicles 2:3 This long genealogy not only lists names, but also gives us insights into some of the people. Here, almost as an epitaph, the genealogy states that Er "was a wicked man, so the Lord killed him." Now, centuries later, this is all we know of the man. Each of us is forging a reputation, developing personal qualities by which we will be remembered. How would God summarize your life up to now? Some defiantly claim that how they live is their own business, but Scripture teaches that the way you live today will determine how you will be remembered by others and how you will be judged by God. What you do now does matter.
