Don’t Shame the Name
October 4, 2022

A Scripture and a Prayer: “Don’t Shame the Name”

“You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.” (Exodus 20:7)


Lord, Your Ten Commandments are not just to be placed upon a wall or monument to be read and “hopefully,” admired, but they are to be kept. And while they are clear cut and known by most, it is this third commandment that seems to have been put to the side for many. It’s sad how we use Your name in vain, and this isn’t just using it in a curse word, or as a part of our slang, but it is in how we live our lives. We say we’re Christians, we say we know you but don’t act in a way that shows that we believe. Therefore, Lord, help us not use Your name in vain, that is, in a way that brings dishonor to You and the wonderful grace and mercy You have extended. Help us to remember this third commandment in how we deal with and in front of others. And this I ask in Jesus’s name. AMEN
