On Your Heart Tuesday/Name Dropper

Are you a name dropper, or have you ever been a name dropper? You know the type of person that I am talking about. You are at a job interview, or college interview, or some type of social event, and you overhear someone dropping names. Example:My mother, so&so, was the head of this fraternity back in 1963. Or, my uncle so&so, is the CEO of several companies. Now, you get it?? People trying to impress other people, not by their own talent, or abilities, or wisdom, but by who they know. I have never been guilty of doing this, I think it is wrong. We should get by on our own merits, not ride through life, on someone else's tailcoat. Fly by, on your own wave baby, that is the right way to go. If you still feel like you need to impress, by dropping a name my friend, drop the big bomb. Your Father's name. Say, I am a princess, my Father is King Of Kings, and Lord of Lords. He is not a mobster, no, He is much bigger than that. He is the ultimate God Father. He not only created this college, business, building, whatever, He created you, and me, and the entire universe. Can you possibly drop a bigger name than that?? I think not!!

Most people I know would smack me if I named were to name drop their name....LOL. I have no problem name dropping that I am a child of God. :)

That's a good name to drop! I wonder how many employers would be impressed with that. I know I would love to hire someone who knows who they are and where they came from!

The Name above all names! Thinking of you in prayers.

Hi Denise,

What a fun idea to be a name dropper the proper way --- with our Daddy. :)

Regarding your comments on my site: Road trips and family times together are always worth it, aren't they?
How is your week going?
