The Fifth Commandment - Honour Your Father and MotherNov 22, 2020

Exodus 20:12
Honour your father and your mother, that your days may be extended upon the land which Jehovah your God is giving you. (RcV)


The fifth commandment deals with our relationship with both God and man. Although we were brought into existence by our parents, our source is actually God. He is the Father of every family and the One who gave each child to his/her parents. When we honour our father and our mother, we honour God Himself. Although the fifth commandment is the first one that talks about our relationship with man (our parents), it is also about our relationship with God. “Honour” means great respect given because of worth, noble deeds, high rank, etc. Do you have this kind of respect for your parents? What is your parents’ worth? Do you respect your parents like they are worth $1 or $1,000,000?
