God said to Moses, “I am who I am.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel: ‘I am has sent me to you.’”
Exodus 3:14 ESV

The third command of the ten requires His people to truly know Him and use His name with integrity.

The depth of His character is infinite, every aspect of His being loving and faithful. In light of this law, it is crucial for us to grow in right knowledge and understanding of who He is.

My child, listen to what I say, and treasure my commands. Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God.
Proverbs 2:1-5 NLT

Consider what you truly know about God today. Ask Him if what you know about Him is true. Confess your ignorance and ask Him to guide you in seeking right knowledge of Him.
