A Thought

When we label someone, we fail to treat that person like Jesus would. We take a soul and cheapen it, render someone less than God made her [or her] to be. When we name her [or her], we accomplish what the Birlings couldn’t bring themselves to do: elevate her closer to the image of God.

So let’s not let anyone’s name become a throwaway line. If we’re going to say it, let’s make sure we mean it … because we’re addressing an immortal in the flesh.
