“Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.” Bro. Jeff points out that we are all children in his thought-provoking and heart-searching message and brings out practical application of the Biblical commandment for children of all ages.
John 13:34-35 KJV
34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all [men] know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
3 Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father, and keep my sabbaths: I [am] the LORD your God.
8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
20 My son, keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
17 The eye [that] mocketh at [his] father, and despiseth to obey [his] mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it.
1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) 3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
20 Children, obey [your] parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.
18 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and [that], when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: 19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; 20 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son [is] stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; [he is] a glutton, and a drunkard. 21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.
10 For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
21 Fathers, provoke not your children [to anger], lest they be discouraged.
1 Timothy 5:3-4, 8
3 Honour widows that are widows indeed. 4 But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God. … 8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
