My wife does most of our banking, so she is always asking me to sign checks so she can take them to the bank. I always have to look to see how to sign my name. Some checks have my full name, “Thomas”, while others are made out to “Tom”. A check may or may not have my middle initial. Some of them include “Jr.” after my name. There are a lot of different combinations that are possible. Often, before signing a check, I will look at it and say out loud, “OK, who am I this time?”
It’s good to know that if you are a child of God, he always knows who you are. He knows your name. He knows everything about you…and he loves you anyway!
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!…”—1 John 3:1.
