Examination of conscience: The second commandment

Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.

This seems like an easy one. Is it? What does it mean?

To tell you the truth, there's at least one casual phrase I hear every day, and to further tell the truth, it's one I've used myself. Why is it (for me, anyway) a sin? What other ways can one break this commandment?

Please feel free to continue exploring the First Commandment, one post below. Thanks!
