Making a name for ourselves

One Caesar – Domitian – had a choir that followed him everywhere he went, singing,

You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and power.*
(Rob Bell)

People are still trying to make a name for themselves, but the most important name is the one given to us by those who know us best.**

The best names of all come to us through lives of humility and service.

(*From Rob Bell’s What is the Bible?)
(**I belong to an organisation that provides names for one another based on they discover and know one another. You cannot suggest your own name, only accept, or not, the name offered.)
