DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Children To Obey and Honour Parents
Every generation of youths thinks they are wiser than their parents. They think civilization has made them wiser and that their parents are outdated. Those who follow this way of thinking keep falling into the same pit of error which the earlier generation fell into. Children who have godly parents are lucky in that they can get godly instructions which will keep them out of the fowlers’ snares. Children should not think their parents’ instructions are not useful. The instructions come out of years of experience and observations. No matter how wise a child may be, he could not have gathered as much experience as the parents. Children have the duty to also honour the parents. No matter how rich or educated the child may be, he should give proper respect to his parents.
Point of Emphasis: Honor your father and mother, so that it may be well with you and you may live long on earth.
Prayer Point: Father, grant unto our children the willing and obedient spirit.
