Listen to the message, always practice it and not ignore it, its statutes are good and real to our lives. That is why it is not good to disobey the Lord, He himself knows why he established these commandments and for this great reason they are there.

One of the commandments placed by the Lord is “Honor your father and your mother”. But this commandment, unlike the other commandments, is accompanied by a promise:

Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;

Ephesians 6:2 (KJV)

The other commandments are clear and direct: You will not steal, you will not kill, etc. But it is very striking that the commandment “Honor your father and your mother” is accompanied by a very powerful promise:

Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

Exodus 20:12 (KJV)

“So that your days may be long on earth.” It is the reward for fulfilling that commandment. Truly, honoring our fathers and mothers is something so great that God Himself gives us something in return for fulfilling it.

Therefore, it is important that parents give good teachings to their children, teach them to be respectful and honor their parents. In the same way, children must learn and put this message into practice, respecting and obeying their parents, putting these good teachings into practice.
