This has been running around in my mind A LOT lately. I think it all started when I really was evaluating what the city I live in really stands for. Most cities have a name they are known for. Before I moved to Las Vegas I lived in America's Finest City (San Diego). There is the Motor City (Detroit) and we also have the Windy City (Chicago). I am sure there are very creative names for many other cities across this globe but for some reason or another God has chosen to place me in Sin City.
When I look at these different city names they all seem to fit. I was blessed to live in San Diego for just over five years and that place is truly America's Finest City. It seems logical to me that Detroit would be called the Motor City understanding how the auto manufacture's cars there. I have never been to Chicago before but I have heard that it is very windy. I have lived in Vegas for over seven years now and it really is Sin City.
After thinking about these city names I got to thinking about what I stand for. If someone had to give me a name for what my life was all about what would that name be? If someone gave you a name for what your life stands for what would that name be? Names are given to places because of what they have chosen to focus on and be known for. In a world that has chosen to reject God on so many levels what are you willing to stand for and what will you be known for?
