How many times have you signed your name to work that you performed? If you are like me most of the times were in school. You did the assigned work and signed it. A teacher could read the work and not know who did it and at other times the teacher could recognize it as one of your papers. Things you do take on your personality. Do you leave a good impression or a bad impression? You will always leave your mark whether you realize it or not. There was a time when a group of people crossed the Red Sea. The water parted and they walked across on dry land. The first thing they did was leave a mark. They gathered some stones and built a marker. All of us need to leave a good legacy. We need to leave our mark. What will others say about you? Good works will be rewarded. Leave a good mark.

Not long after my father died in1984, I asked for 30 days credit at a truck dealership where he and I had done business. The shop manager really didn't know me personally, but when he looked at my full name and saw the Roman numeral after it he said the following: "I see you're named after your dad. He had a good name everywhere he went. I know you wouldn't do anything to dishonor that name, so you've got your 30 days." I felt both honored and humbled. I'm sure I've done a few things over the years that Dad would have questioned, but I've never forgotten that man's words.

As Christians, we basically bear our Lord's name. I KNOW that I've let HIM down at times, and while I know that He'll forgive me, it bothers me that some poor soul might form his opinion of Christ by watching me in a moment of weakness. That's why I pray every day that He'll lead me in His paths of righteousness for HIS name's sake, not mine. Sadly, I still fail a lot.
