The Divine Design For Children


children honor parents

Heavenly perspective for children,

“Children obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. ‘Honor your father and mother.’” (Ephesians 6:1, 2)

Obeying and honoring our parents is one of the highest callings and the greatest tasks we face in life. While there are no perfect parents, (just as there are no perfect children) they deserve to be respected, valued and cared for by their Christian children. These godly acts of love will take on different forms at different stages of our lives; from simple obedience, to care-taking. So, honor your parents, “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land” (Ephesians 6:3).
