Deuteronomy 5:16 (NIV 1984)
“Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
Living life is about relationships. The Ten Commandments [Exodus 20:1-17] contain wisdom to guide us in our relationship with God, with others, and with family members – particularly with our earthly father and mother. In today’s broken world we find that not all families are healthy – some are dysfunctional. May we, regardless of our family circumstances, find a way to appreciate and honor the role that our father and mother have had in shaping who we are in Christ.
