Sermon Meme: Third Commandment

The third commandment is most often translated: You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain. More modern translations have recognized the larger meaning—it’s not just a matter of speech—and now use “misuse.”

The Hebrew is more literally translated: “Do not carry the name of the Lord thy God in vain.”

With that in mind, I have opted to consider putting this in the positive for my sermon meme.

How do you carry the Name of God?
