In the recent times, we are seeing how teens are acting, and disobeying their parents regardless of what parents are suffering because of the disobedience of their children.
And we not only mention teenagers, we also see this in people of all ages, who do not measure their actions and often even cause the death of their parents. Below we show you the only commandment with promise:
“Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
Here we see clearly what the Lord is telling us, what we should do with our parents, and this was one of the commandments that the Lord gave Moses when he was in the desert. The word “honor” is used to put someone on high and value who deserves it, and also to show them this kind of values that have been lost: Be respectful, treat them with Love, be obedient, dressing them, and using good communication with them, to this is what the Bible refers when talks abuout to honoring our parents.
We show another verse, which explains what happens to those who do not obey but curse their parents.
If someone curses their father or mother,
their lamp will be snuffed out in pitch darkness.
And this is the consequence of cursing your parents, it says that his lamp will be extinguished in darkness, and that everything will go wrong and his days will be shortened, and with this we see that it will no longer be the same, and this is for disrespect your parents, as this other verse says:
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
But we must also raise our children in the ways of the Lord as his Word says, so that when our children are grown they can obey us at all times.
We will finish with the following biblical quote, telling you what we must do so that our children have a good habit and so that they can be obedient as the Word of the Lord says:
Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
