Marriage and Family

Dewater 4
“For this reason, I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and earth derives its name,” Ephesians 3:14-15

My last name is Dewater. My last name to some degree indicates my ancestry. My last name comes from my Dutch ancestry. I guess that makes me a Dutch Bro!

A name says a lot about a person. When I think of someone’s name, I think of who they are. I think of what their character is like. I think of how they treat me and others.

When people think of my last name, they may think of me, my wife, my boys, my dad, or my grandparents. When people think of my last name, they think of who we are, what our character is like, and how we treat people.

Since my family name originates from my Father in Heaven, my name points back to Him. It’s important that when people think of my name, they get an accurate picture of my Father in Heaven.

I leave you with this question to think on and/or respond to:

Since our family name originates from our Father in Heaven, how then should we live?
