Listen to the Word
“You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.” (Exodus 20:7)

God wants you to lift up his name rather than tearing it down. He wants you to treasure it, to value it. He wants to help you live in such a way that his name is honored. God wants people around you to notice that when you open your mouth, what comes out tends to be truthful, helpful, and encouraging. He wants the people who observe you when you are facing a crisis to notice that you do so with hope and strength that comes from him. God wants your friends to notice that your life is marked with joy and patience and kindness and other rare virtues. When they see these things in you, they will realize that your God really does make a difference, and that will bring honor to his name.

Live the Word
Pray that God will cause everyone you encounter today to be impressed with him.
