“Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the Lord your God is giving you.” Deuteronomy 5:16 (NIV)
Honoring and respecting your parents is very important. Without honor and respect, there is dishonor and disrespect; without parents, children would not have proper discipline. Can you imagine not having parents?
I am blessed to have parents that love me enough to discipline me.
Parents, take time to invest in your children. It is worth it. And not only your children will thank you, but others will too.
Children, obey your parents as the Lord commands. Respect them, and be very thankful for them. Why? Because without them, you wouldn’t even exist. Be thankful that God gave you parents to honor.
“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. ‘Honor your father and your mother’ which is the first commandment with a promise ‘that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.’” Ephesians 6:1-3(NIV)
