God’s Commandment with Promise

by Pastor Ken

“Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with a promise.

Ephesians 6:2

God’s commandment to obey our parents is for our good—our physical and spiritual good. Throughout the Bible, He gives us examples of the blessings and benefits to those who are obedient to their parents.

You never know the love of your parent till you become a parent yourself. Magic Johnson once mentioned that God blessed him with two unbelievable parents. He said, “I have the smile and charisma of my mother and the big heart of my mom because she wants to save the world and help the world, so I am just like her.” 

When you honor your parents you honor God. And when you honor God, He honors you.

Prayer: Lord, help me to honor and care for my parents as You have commanded me to do. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
