Why Honoring Your Parents Is Important
Why Honoring Your Parents is Important: Our parents are important to us, and we must respect them. In the world currently, people don’t seem to care about their parents’ feelings.
We’ve witnessed kids and even teenagers treat their parents disrespectfully. Certain children even appear to make it their mission to disgrace their parents, calling them names on the internet or even in person.
Disrespecting parents appears to be celebrated in our culture, which frequently plays it for comedy.
What does it mean to honor your parents? Honoring our parents involves more than simply obeying and respecting them.
God told us in Exodus 20:12: “Respect your parents in order to prolong your life in the land that the Lord, your God, is giving you.
The commandment to “honor your father and your mother” appears often in the Bible. (Exodus 20:12; Deuteronomy 5:16; Matthew 15:4; Ephesians 6:2, 3)
We have to know that this verse doesn’t apply just to children. There is no age restriction on us honoring our parents, according to God.
Respecting our parents is not something we only do as young children. We have to respect our parents for the rest of our lives.
If you are a parent, appreciating your parents in front of their grandchildren is a wonderful way to show them that you appreciate them.
As we get older, we have to know that our parents are not perfect, and we have to love them.
It’s possible that your parents didn’t lead moral lives. It’s possible that your dad left with another woman. It’s possible that your mother battled substance abuse.
It doesn’t really matter what their circumstances are. Look for ways to show them your respect, not only because it’s the correct thing to do but also because they deserve it.
