Exodus 20:7 ” You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses His name.”

OMG – a common abbreviation used in texting and other internet communication.  Do you use it?  If so, this Scripture is directed at you today.  Can you see that you’re perverting the name of your God by taking His name lightly…that you’re taking what’s holy – defiling and placing it in crude and tasteless places…places that His name should never be seen in.    I can hear you say, “But it’s just an abbreviation for being surprised and I don’t mean anything wrong by it!”   Any form of taking the Lord’s name in vain…in a superficial or dishonoring way is wrong, regardless if you think it’s harmless.
