Hallowed be Thy name (OF2)


Hallowed means consecrated, sanctified, sacred, or holy. Do we treat God’s name as holy? If not, we should! That means not taking His name in vain by putting words like dammit after it. I once heard someone respond to that expression by stating “God’s last name isn’t dammit.” It was a respectful response while still making the point that we should respect God’s holy name. If we as humans don’t like our own names profaned, why would we profane God’s name, the God who made us? Doesn’t He deserve better?

  1. Great thoughts!. Also using the phrase, “oh my God”, which we hear often. When my teenage son used to say that in high school, I would tell him, “son you better finish that prayer.” Thanks for a great post.
