In the Lord’s Prayer, we’re reminded that God’s name is hallowed (Matthew 6:9). Many times a message on this portion of the prayer reflects on not taking the Lord’s name in vain. Of course, that’s one important aspect of the prayer, but it goes far beyond that. Indeed, this portion of the prayer imparts an edict that we honor Him in all that we say or do. All of our actions should elevate God in the earth (Matthew 5:29-30). Does your behavior bring glory and honor to God? Think about that the next time you pray the Lord’s Prayer.
