This morning, I had another Bible lesson much like this one. Though I was standing right in front of him, Matthan kept saying, "Mommy. Mommy. Mommy. Mommy! Mommy! MOMMY!" All the while, I am saying, "Yes, Bud." every time. Finally, it was too much. So I yelled, "Stop saying my name if you're not going to do anything!" More than ever before, it hit me. God doesn't really like that either--He must not if it's one of his top ten rules. And I thought about my dad's sermon on Sunday (if you'd like a link to listen, I can send it to you)--that maybe I'm not guilty of saying God's name as an expletive, but that, like I yelled at my son about, I am guilty of saying His name repeatedly without doing anything.
