With this promise God wants to impress upon us that he considers obedience to our parents to be a very important matter that results in a great temporal blessing, so that we would gladly obey this Commandment.

Eph. 6:2,3: Honor thy father and mother – which is the first commandment with promise – that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
