Profane Pleas

“Profanity” literally means “making it as common as a doorsill.” Few give a passing thought to a doorsill when crossing it. That is exactly the attitude toward God’s Name that is forbidden. When Israel used to be God’s chosen people, He said: “And you shall not swear by My name falsely, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the LORD” (Leviticus 19:12). Jesus’ New Law teaches Christians to pray: “Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name” (Luke 11:2). It is only when Bible history is ignored that people profane God’s Name. Constant “OMG’s” profane God. When disaster comes, how can a profane person mean it when he says: “God, help me”? If we wish to call on God to help, don’t profane His Name. “The LORD is for me among those who help me” (Psalm 118:7).
