“Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with promise…” Our youth – and all of us regardless of age – do we understand the importance of Almighty God’s promise embedded in this commandment?
This is one of the Ten Commandments of the Bible. How many of you know which one it is?
Do we know what is extra special about this particular commandment?
Ephesians 6:1-3 “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right, ‘Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with promise: that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.’”
What does this special promise mean – and how we recognize whether or not we receive its blessings in our lives?
