Live Wisely – Obey and Honor Your Parents

Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. They will be a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck.

Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old. Buy the truth and do not sell it; get wisdom, discipline and understanding. The father of a righteous child has great joy; he who has a wise son delights in him.  May your father and mother be glad; may she who gave you birth rejoice!

Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction; pay attention and gain understanding. I give you sound learning so do not forsake my teaching. … Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old. Buy the truth and do not sell it; get wisdom, discipline and understanding. The father of a righteous man has great joy; he who has a wise son delights in him. May your father and mother be glad; may she who gave you birth rejoice!

The eye that mocks a father, that scorns obedience to a mother, will be pecked out by the ravens of the valley, will be eaten by the vultures.

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother—which is the first commandment with a promise—that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.

    So true. I handed my father at 92 to the Lord 3 weeks ago. What a blessing. What wisdom. Thanks to my Lord.
