Our name carries a message as to who we are, or who we are hoped to be. Our names can often express our parents' wishes for our purpose in the world. Our given name can define who we are or who we become; Moses means "to draw out" - because his mother drew him out of a river (Exodus 2:10), Isaiah named his son to communicate GOD'S MESSAGE; "a remnant shall return" (Isaiah 73). Sometimes we receive a NEW NAME (people give us nick names or we have a permanent name change) TO SYMBOLIZE "A NEW BEGINNING". DOES OUR NAME DEFINE OUR LIFE; OR DOES OUR LIFE DEFINE OUR NAME? WHAT IF WE ALL WERE KNOWN BY THE SAME NAME; "CHRISTIAN"? THEN OUR NAME DEFINES US AND OUR ACTIONS DEFINE OUR NAME. TO DAY IS YOUR NAME DAY, "TREAT IT WITH REVERENCE".
