God's Name Represents God Himself

"Disney." What do you think of when you hear that name? Do you think of a young shy boy from Chicago who wanted to be a cartoonist? Probably not. What did you think of? Maybe a movie (The Little Mermaid or Lion King), or a theme park (Disney Land or Disney World), or a cartoon character (Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck). You probably don't think of the man Walt Disney, who died in 1966, but of all his name has come to represent.  There is power in a name. It is more than just some letters strung together to make a certain sound. A name represents someone or something. God's name represents God Himself. Therefore, it should be held in highest honor, as the Third Commandment teaches (Exodus 20:7).
