Ecclesiastes tells us that life works best when we have a good name (or a good reputation). In fact Ecclesiastes tells us that a good name is better than fine perfume.

If fine perfume has all these qualities a good name has similar qualities and its even better than the perfumes. Let’s dive into what it looks like to have a good name.
