Finding Relationship Through God’s Top Ten: Humility
Most people think The Ten Commandments are a list of rules / Do’s & Don’ts. But actually, the Ten Commandments are principles for living. Those principles enhance our relationships with God and other people.
“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.
When they came to the nations, wherever they went, they profaned My holy name—when they said of them, ‘These are the people of the LORD, and yet they have gone out of His land.’ But I had concern for My holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations wherever they went. “Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “I do not do this for your sake, O house of Israel, but for My holy name’s sake, which you have profaned among the nations wherever you went. And I will sanctify My great name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst; and the nations shall know that I am the LORD,” says the Lord GOD, “when I am hallowed in you before their eyes.
Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.
Her prophets plastered them with untempered mortar, seeing false visions, and divining lies for them, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD,’ when the LORD had not spoken.
And you shall not swear by My name falsely, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the LORD.

When we use God’s name to pray for a selfish purpose, we take His name in vain.
In the church today, we have people that sometimes share their opinions and say that God said it, and it’s little more than their own desires being expressed or to come across spiritual.
It’s arrogant to treat the name of the Lord in a common manner or to use God’s name to curse.
The best way to proclaim the name of the Lord is to praise Him with gratitude.
You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
What a Beautiful Name it is!
