One of the things that stuck out to me in today's reading is how God was preparing to make His name known to all peoples in a way in which it wouldn't be profaned any longer. The Israelites had carried His name, but they profaned it by the way they lived and whored after other nations and other gods. But this wouldn't be the case any longer. God was and is concerned about the glory of His name. If you're carrying it, make sure that you're glorifying it, too.
