“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 (NIV)

Meditation

We often look at the third commandment and think that we are not guilty of breaking this one. After all we would never use the Lord’s name in a profane way. But is that true? Sometimes we say things like “the Lord told me” when it is only our opinion. That is misusing God’s name. Do you hold God’s name in reverence?
