My [Trade Mark]

  This morning I was reading Philippians chapter 2 on and as I was reading there were small little symbols by some of the words. I instantly thought that they were the Trade Mark symbol [TM]. As I looked more closely I noticed that they were just symbols marking that there is a definition for the word later on. I thought it was pretty interesting that my first thought was that it was Trade Marked. I mean, it's the bible, I don't think Jesus spent a lot of time trade marking things. Culturally we see that symbol a lot and it lets us know that whatever were looking at is owned by some one else. I looked up the definition of a Trade mark and this is what I found: "A device (as a word) pointing distinctly to the origin or ownership of merchandise to which it is applied and legally reserved to the exclusive use of the owner as maker or seller."
  It got me thinking.... What if we Trade Marked a characteristics? What if we lived like Jesus so well that our [TM] was something like Compassion, or Love, Grace, or Humility. I know for me that isn't going to be easy. I have realized lately that I am not very sensitive to other peoples needs . I know that I need to work on Compassion and Grace. So that is the [TM] I am going for. Compassion and Grace. What is your [TM] going to be?

Grace and Peace
