Day 180 – Blessings for Honouring Parents
- The first blessing for honouring your parents is long life.
Exodus 20:12 says:
‘Respect your father and your mother, so that you may live a long time in the land that I am giving you.’
This is Gods promise; when you respect your parents, you will have long life. Determine to esteem your parents highly.
- The second blessing is that honouring your parents will lead to an improved character.
Proverbs 1:8-9 says:
8 my son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: 9 for they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
This talks about beautification, it means when you honour your parents by listening to their instruction you will be beautified. Your life will be beautified. This is also a challenge to parents to raise their children in the ways and admonition of the lord. This way you ensure your instruction to your children are pleasing to God.
Your life will be long and beautified when you honour your parents. Lord help every child, to mend our ways and live in a way pleasing to you, by honouring our parents. O Lord, prosper every life today and let your name be praised forever in Jesus’ name. Amen.
