Honour Your Parents

 

Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.
Exodus 20:12 

 
Honor begets honor. God will not honor those who will not obey His command to honor their parents. We should seek to honor our parents in much the same way that we strive to bring glory to God - in our thoughts, words, and actions. If we desire to please God and be blessed, we should honor our parents so that we may live long and purposeful lives on earth.

Prayer for the day:

Lord, thank you for your command to honour my parents so that I may live a long, healthy and purposeful life on earth. Thank you for your forgiveness and grace at times I fail to obey you and give heartaches to my parents. Help me to be a good and obedient child who follows your footsteps. Deliver me from this spirit of short temper, disobedience and every act of rebellion that may cause harm my parents' feeling. May I be a source of comfort and blessing to my parents so that my entire family is happy and blessed. In Jesus' precious name I pray. Amen.
