Day 179 – That It May Go Well With You
‘Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness.’ Proverbs 20:20
‘If you curse your parents, your life will end like a lamp that goes out in the dark.’
Proverbs 20:20 (Good News)
The word “curse” here means to despise or esteem lightly. Each time you despise or esteem your parents lightly you curse them! Many lives, especially of young people, are ruined because of their attitude towards their parents. Often times, one despises one’s parents in one’s mind and so no one knows but you. God however knows our hearts and He is the judge of all men. Every act of disrespect towards your father or mother is a destructive seed for your future, you do not want this type of seed in your life. It is wisdom to honour your parents.
Make the decision to honour your parents today. Do not wait until you have plenty of money before supporting your aged parents. In fact, even if your parents have more money than you do, it is honourable to give to them according to your available resources. This is part of honouring them; and God loves it. Decide to turn around your attitude towards your parents, and the God of heaven will bless you and your children. He will bless all you do and your days will be long on the earth.
Father I pray that grace and mercy will be available to everyone reading this now; in Jesus’ name. Amen.
