'Honor Thy Father And Thy Mother'

Exodus 20:12, Ephesians 6:1-3, Colossians 3:20

Honor thy father and thy mother; that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord the God giveth thee. Children obey your parents in the Lord; for this is right.

In God giving of the law did not leave out parenting skills as noted in our study texts in that children are under their parents guidance, teaching and remain until they become part of another family through marriage. I was taught that a man and wife becomes one family unit as they are joined together by the Lord in holy matrimony and are no longer under the directions of their parents. This is because at some point they too will become parents.

Small children must be taught to honor their parents just as they must be taught to honor the Lord God our creator and sustainer. This relates to the issue of Biblical Training for all believers and especially our children because must be trained up in the ways of the Lord (Deuteronomy 6:7).

It is noteworthy to say, older children still must honor their parents in respect, godly wisdom, care, love and support if needed. In many instances older children are pressed into providing medical care for their parents. This is not out of the realm of God's provisional care as He made provisions for all. Older children should look at this as God's blessing them to be able to provide for their parents. God promises to bless our children with a long life if they honor their parents. God always keeps His promise.

Parents honor God, children honor your parents; all is blessed and God gets the glory.
