What It Means to Take the Lord’s Name In Vain

As a kid I often heard that taking the Lords Name in Vain meant to not use God’s name as a curse word like “Oh my God”. But as I got older it’s seems kind of silly the seriousness people placed on not saying these. It’s almost as if it’s the unforgivable sin if I say OMG. There’s got to be something more that’s going on here. I’m not arguing that we should start using this language, however I think we are missing something in this commandment.
