Why are we to honor our parents?

Share |

God himself has instituted parenthood, the office of the ministry and earthly governments. He has also ordained that the young are to respect the elderly. Therefore we are to obey the Fourth Commandment for God’s sake. When we honor our parents, we honor God. If we despise our parents, we despise God.

Titus 2:5: To be obedient... that the word of God be not blasphemed.
