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?
