Your Name

Here’s what’s cool: Learning and using people’s names. (Warren Buffett, wealthy philanthropist)

This is no. 2 in Buffett’s list of cool things. You might wonder how this business magnate accumulated his great wealth; maybe this is one of the factors in his success. Almost everyone likes to hear his name, and when you are addressed by someone you’ve seldom met, it’s impressive to be called by name. What’s more, God knows all of his creation by name.

He counts the stars and calls them all by name (Psalm 147:4).
