You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses His name. Exodus 20:7
Today you are invited to consider how you feel when you hear God’s name used in vain. When people use His name as a swear word or an expletive, what does that do to you? How do you react? Do you speak out in objection or are you silent? What holds you back? How do you use God’s name yourself? Do you always speak it with reverence or does it slip out occasionally in ways God speaks against here when you are angry or deeply moved in some way? What is God saying to you today about your use of His name? How will you respond?
May God bless you as you hold His name as precious and holy in the days ahead.
