How Do You Know My Name?

I've always loved the little story about the boy who's trying to

learn the Lord's Prayer, and one night as he knelt by his bed, these

words came out:

Our Father, who are in heaven 

How do you know my name?

Such individualized affection will always remain a mystery to us mortals, and at the same time, let us never forget we're made in the image of that extraordinary love. And doing what Jesus did in loving each one he ever met as if there were none other in all the world is at least an ideal toward which we can reach even if it always remains utterly beyond our complete grasp. God knows our name, but the real question is, do you share HIS name with others?
