Naming Your World

Genesis 2:19 – So out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name.RSV

Whatever the man called every living creature, that was it’s name…one of the great human powers, perhaps the greatest power. Whether you believe that the Bible contains the Word of God or not, this is inspired writing. It is true; whatever call we something that’s what it is, whatever we name our world that is how we will experience it. As with any great power, it can be used either to create or to destroy our lives as well as the lives of those around us.

Taking responsibility for our experience of life includes assuming responsibility for what and how we chose to name it. How ever we name our lives we will invariably seek evidence that we have named it truthfully. We will build a blind spot for any contrary evidence.We must know that if we name our lives Hell, they becomes Hell for us.
