Honor Thy Father And Mother…

“Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honor thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” Ephesians 6:1-4

Whoever curses his father or his mother, His lamp will be put out in deep darkness. Proverbs 20:20

‘Cursed is the one who treats his father or his mother with contempt.’ “And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’ Deuteronomy 27:16

Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you, that your days may be long, and that it may be well with you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you. Deuteronomy 5:16

Listen to your father who begot you, And do not despise your mother when she is old. Proverbs 23:22

Every one of you shall revere his mother and his father, and keep My Sabbaths: I am the Lord your God. Leviticus 19:3

A wise son makes a father glad, But a foolish man despises his mother. Proverbs 15:20

Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

He who mistreats his father and chases away his mother, Is a son who causes shame and brings reproach. Proverbs 19:26

A foolish son is a grief to his father, And bitterness to her who bore him. Proverbs 17:25

My son, hear the instruction of your father, And do not forsake the law of your mother. Proverbs 1:8

A wise son makes a glad father, But a foolish son is the grief of his mother. Proverbs 10:1

A wise son heeds his father’s instruction, But a scoffer does not listen to rebuke. Proverbs 13:1

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 2 Timothy 3:1-7

There is a generation that curses its father, And does not bless its mother. Proverbs 30:11

For God commanded, saying, ‘Honor thy father and mother’ Matthew 15:4


Heavenly Father, thank you for this day. Thank you for the mercy You show. I pray for our land. I know Your children (me included) have grieved and are grieving You. I am so thankful You are slow to anger. I am thankful You are full of mercy and grace. Be with the Godly parents training up the children of the future to come. May we all remember what our Godly parents taught us and not depart. Forgive us Lord, where we have not honored YOU- our Father, but also our earthly parents. I lift up all the parents who are training and have trained their children. May they receive the honor and respect that Your word commands. I pray for the lost Lord, not only is that Your child, but its some Momma and Daddy’s son or daughter. Give parents the strength to train their children in the ways of YOUR word, not of this evil world. Give parents the patience to endure if their children may disobey for a season. I lift up Your prodigal children, keep wooing and convicting them Father. Lord, I just lift up this land to you. Help us to turn away from the ways of the world and what is accepted. Lord, help us to remember what our parents taught us, to open our Bible and see what YOU say is right, not what is accepted now days. Thank you Father, for your son dying on the cross for our sins. Though He sweated blood and said “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” He obeyed, even when it hurt. Lord, help Your Christian children obey YOUR WAYS, YOUR revealed will even when it hurts, even when the world screams at them to disobey. In Jesus precious name, Amen.


    • I just love the word of God and how he uses you, “his child” to remind us that life is a gift. And we should be obedient to our father that shed his blood for us. He set the example for his children. This is a very important commandment. May you feel his presence forever.
