Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth”. Eph 6:1-3 [KJV].
TEXT: PROVERBS 10:1
Brothers and sisters, it is very important to understand that our parents are the channels through which God bring us to this earth. They were the ones that brought us to the realisation of good and evil, and as such, having regards for them is a command straight from God.
We should never come to the extent of feeling over-matured than our parents. Many of us have grown wings and can now fly beyond the limit of our parents’ correction or guidance; and most times, we are more right and see our parents as wrong. We see them as “old fashion”. But we must disregard all that urge to disregard our parents in all way possible.
Never become too big to take correction from them. Grey hair, they say is wisdom! Obeying and honoring them has a blessing of long life and prosperity attached to it.
Finally, no matter how bad your parents are, they gave birth to you. Always give them the honor and respect they deserve. Do well to appreciate them as often as you can, even today……….
PRAYERS: I pray that the lord will help us to understand the value of our parents in Jesus’ Name, Amen. Father, help me to regard my parents in all I do so my day may be long. Amen.
