Well as you know by now our son‑on‑the‑way has a name, but if you know me, one of the first things I did after we settled on the name was buy Harrison a website.

Some may find this a little sentimental or over‑the‑top, but in today’s world of Google and Wikipedia one can tell a lot about a person from a search engine. Owning your name as a web address can go a long way to protect your reputation.

As parent’s we have a great responsibility, naming our son was a big step, but in the scheme of things a very small step . . . .

The Bible has a lot to say about the importance of a good name:
“A good name is to be more desired than great wealth, Favor is better than silver and gold.” Proverbs 22:1 (NASB)
“A good [name] is better than a fat bank account.” Ecclesiastes 7:1a (The Message)
That being said, Harrison Clark has his first websites: www.HarrisonRClark.com and www.HarrisonClark.net.

Now owning a web address may protect a good name, but it will not GAIN a good name. That will take some effort on our part and especially on Harrison’s part. In my next post, I will share a few things that I want Harrison to understand so that, as Proverbs 3:4 says, he “will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.” (NIV)
