An Opinion On Names

leave a comment »

I’ve been very interested in Genesis lately and I have been thinking about the time when people began to select names for their children. It has become the custom in this country to name children nearly anything that can pop into one’s head. People literally just make up a word and name their child this thing. We can see from this part of Scripture that children’s names from the beginning always had meaning and often that child was able to take that name with them into life and it caused them to become the greatness implied in the name. It was part of the legacy that the parents gave to the child and it still should be. I ask whoever may read this to think long and hard about the names that you give to your children because a name is one of the most important things that you will give them. Please don’t name them something that is fashionable today but will be forgotten as soon as they grow up. These things change with the wind, but a good name (rich with meaning) will follow them all of the days of their life. Just my opinion.
