Parents, teach your children
The values- God-given
To bestow a divine haven.
Let God’s Word light their path
Teach them what is right
To fight the good fight
But unless you are obedient
You can’t command obedience
Because the seed you have sown
Will give the tree you will own
Which will produce the fruit you will eat.
And so the circuit complete.
So sow good seeds to reap fruits good
The easy way is to eat God’s Word as your food.
Children obey your parents
That is God’s commandment
If you want longevity
Authority and prosperity
Hold on to integrity
Give your parents respect
Expect God to protect
Guide and provide
Secure your future
Parents and Children
Eph:6:1: Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
Eph:6:2: Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)
Eph:6:3: That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
Eph:6:4: And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
1 Children, obey your parents because you belong to the Lord, for this is the right thing to do. 2 “Honor your father and mother.” This is the first commandment with a promise: 3 If you honor your father and mother, “things will go well for you, and you will have a long life on the earth.”
4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction that comes from the Lord. New Living Translation
