22 Oct Ephesians 6:1-2

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother (which is the first commandment with a promise),

This verse is very clear and something our society has seemed to get away from. The first two verses talk about obeying your parents while under their household, but to honor them as adults. This is more difficult for those who have a rough upbringing and feel like they shouldn’t obey their parents or they are not worthy of honor. This does not talk about respecting them, but holding them in such esteem because of their role as parents. There is a difference between obeying and honoring.
