A Son to Carry on Your Name
The Bible makes a case for the family name to stay in the earth through the son. That’s a sovereign issue. Every person conceived in the womb, whether male or female, relates to God’s sovereignty but the Bible places an emphasis on a son. That is because in creative order God created the man first and then He made the woman from the man. That was a priority in the eyes of God. It doesn’t mean that the man has greater value. It simply means that in His sovereignty God determined that this would be the order of His creation. Genesis 5:2 says that God “called their name Adam.” When a couple gets married, the preacher says at the end of the ceremony, “Ladies and gentlemen, I now present to you, Mr. and Mrs. Wellington Boone.” The two have become one with the surname of Boone.
