Honoring Your Parents

How much thought do you give to honoring your parents? It’s definitely something God has thought a lot about. In fact, He promises that if you respect your parents, He will bless you: “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land” (Exodus 20:12).

Once you marry, this command and promise applies to both sets of parents-yours and your spouse’s. Your motive for loving and honoring your parents is to obey God’s instructions, not just to receive some personal benefit. But it’s great to have God’s special blessings as a result of your obedience.

Do you desire to honor and bless your parents? Then God’s promise “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth” (Ephesians 6:3) is yours-as you will honor your parents.

God, I know my parents sacrificed much, so much for me. They have cared for me, and it is the desire of my heart that I care for them and honor them. Please show me more ways to honor them with my words and my actions. Amen.
