It’s not easy to keep up with the shorthand that accompanies today’s fast-paced, youth oriented electronic communication. In text message language “laughing out loud” becomes “lol.” “By the way” is “btw” and regrettably, some people use “omg” for “Oh, my God!”

This last phrase seems to be on the lips of many who receive startling news. But as Christians, we need to stop before we utter this or any other phrase that flippantly uses God’s name.

In every way possible, we should honor and protect God’s holy name, preserving its use for those occasions when we are speaking of Him or addressing Him in faith. Lets be careful never to turn the hallowed name of our awesome and mighty God into just another flippant phrase on our lips or in a text message.
