HONOR THY FATHER & THY MOTHER

Mother’s Day & Father’s Day is approaching. I was raised to honor my parents. “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.” – Exodus 20:12

Mother’s Day & Father’s Day is approaching. I was raised to honor my parents. “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.” – Exodus 20:12

Honoring is giving respect or holding in great esteem. When you're young and immature it seems difficult to want to listen to someone, let alone give respect because we haven't fully come to understand respect and esteem.  We learn, from our parents or a parent figure in your life and most of the time it seems like we're constantly chastised and being corrected. All of that is essential to the process of being trained to be a well-rounded person. 

 

My parents trained my sisters  and I in the church and to be a close-knit family. We were trained to forgive and to help those in need, to respect our elders. “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old, he will not depart from it”. 

-Proverbs 22:6

 

There must be direction accompanied with love, even in correction there is love. In all things show love and patience. There are many things that you can't do over and time is one of them, create enjoyable moments and memories that maybe cherished over time. Though you may not replay time, you can replay the memories had in past times.

For, those who have lost a parent or parent figure, cherish the memories. During this Covid-19 pandemic we all  have learned to appreciate time, more, and want to hug or smile, more. Tomorrow is not promised to no man, show love and appreciation to your mother and father. There is no one that can replace them. 

God Bless and have a Happy Mother's and Father’s Day.
