Honor your Father and Mother

1CHILDREN, OBEY your parents in the Lord [as His representatives], for this is just and right.

2Honor (esteem and value as precious) your father and your mother--this is the first commandment with a promise--(A)

3That all may be well with you and that you may live long on the earth.

This is important. Honoring, esteeming, and putting value on your parents is very important. Unfortunately, here in America, the model of family is tearing down. Just tune into a court show any day of the week and see how many children are suing their parents. We don't value family. We don't value our parents.
The first commandment with a promise in the Bible is to obey and honor our parents. The reward - that ALL may be well and to live a long life on the earth.
Put your family first. Esteem your parents. Honor them today. This is the one of the first steps to a successful and blessed life!
