I have found that people have names that have a strong,
pronounced meaning that should be the destiny of their lives. Peter
means "rock" - "on this rock I will build my church" - and Laurel means
"victory" - but either people fulfill that destiny, or if they don't, if
they miss God's call on their lives, their life will be a mockery of
the meaning of that name. So our admonition is: take heed, does your
life exemplify the meaning of your name, or mock it?
