6) Where'd You Get That Name?
Have you ever wondered how we got our last names or what they mean? For example, the last name, “Miller,” originally described a person’s job. A miller owned or worked in a grain mill grinding corn, wheat, or some other type of grain. Someone named “North,” was
originally a description of where a person lived--he or she lived “north” of a certain town. The name “Smith” described a metalworker, or
“Brown,” someone with brown hair or skin. People would refer to others by saying, John the miller or Mike the smith or Rebecca from the north or Jim with a brown beard, is coming here or doing such and such. Eventually the titles were dropped and they became known as John Miller, Mike Smith, Rebecca North and Jim Brown.
God too is known by many names. His names define him as Protector, Defender, Friend, Advisor, Judge, and Savior to name just a few. The Third Commandment says, “Do Not Misuse God’s Name”.
Through the study of "His Name Shall Be Called..." it is my desire
that children will learn new respect and honor for the God we serve!
