God’s commandment to honour parents
- Saved by comes before saved for.
“Children obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right..”
- “For this is right”
- “In the Lord.”
- “this is the first commandment with a promise…”
- “Fathers, do not exasperate your children…”
- “but bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.”
A second stage – to courtesy and respect for parents.
A third stage of honouring parents – supporting & caring for them.
Jesus is our example in honouring parents.
- At the age of 12.
- When suffering on the cross.
Jesus is not only our example, but also our help.
