The 10 Commandments are 10 simple and concrete statements that could transform the planet. There is nothing ambiguous about them. Consider this: if everyone practiced the 10 commandments there would be justice, everlasting peace, freedom, unity, dignity, integrity, prosperity, and love. If there is a even the slightest possibility that this is true we should study and reflect deeply upon them.
In the third commandment we see the Lord state again that He is ‘the Lord your God’. We are in covenant with Him, we know Him and His name. So His name, which is a declaration of His character and nature, is spoken with a deep awareness of His presence and power. We do not treat His name as though it is empty or without weight, but our aim is to honor the Lord’s name and treat it with the honor and glory that it’s due.
7 “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.
