We are not to steal, cheat or lie. Those who now have claimed the Lord as their Lord shall not profane the name of their God, for the Lord's name is hallowed, or holy. In other words, if we are living as the Lord wants us to live, we should not take the Lord's name in vain or use inappropriate language. Excuses such as, "Well, I really did not mean it" or "I don't even think about what I am saying" don't cut it. If we are truly living for the Lord, the expectation is that we will strive all the time to watch what we say - not just when the preacher is around, or when we are in the presence of others who may not appreciate it. This is a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week effort.
