Day 178 – Honour Your Father and Mother
8My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: 9for they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck. Proverbs 1:8-9
The Bible teaches us to honour our parents. If you take heed to the instructions of your parents that is one way you honour them, and it will be well with you. Exodus 20:12 says: ‘Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.’ This is the first commandment with a promise. It simply mean esteeming your parents highly, not on the grounds of merit but, because merely because God said so.
If you obey this commandment you not only honour your parents but you also honour God. Determine today to listen to your parent’s instruction. Determine today to esteem your parents highly. Take Good care of them, speak kindly and gracious words to and about your parents. Visit them if you are no longer living with them and be involved with their welfare. Do this and it shall be well with you. You might just want to send your parents a text right now, or give them a call.
As we go out today let grace and mercy attended to us. If anyone has trouble with their parent, Lord give them wisdom to resolve it in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen. God bless you.
