Romans 2:24

New International Version (NIV)
24 As it is written: “God’s name is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.”

If God is great enough to create everything we see around us simply by speaking a word, it would be wise of us to do everything in our power to not profane His name. This verse is like train crossing with bars lowered, lights flashing and alarms sounding: Danger! Do not cross this line! If we are blaspheming God's name, we need to change our words and actions immediately. The context given in the previous verses shows that this warning is addressed to people who know and enforce God's Law among other people but don't live by it themselves. In what ways do you encourage others to obey God's Law using whatever means available to you and yet disobey it yourself? Be honest in your answer, at least in the privacy of your own mind. Don't play the fool by ignoring the warning and continuing to blaspheme God's holy name.
