Honoring Parents

Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you. Exodus 20:12 NIV


Do you find it interesting that after the four commandments to honor God, He then has us honor and respect our parents? I think it goes beyond parents but to respect authority figures. Likewise, those in authority should act in a way to be worthy of respect by respecting those under their authority.


For the Lord’s sake, respect all human authority—whether the king as head of state, or the officials he has appointed. For the king has sent them to punish those who do wrong and to honor those who do right. 1 Peter 2:13-14 NLT
