LENT & COMMANDMENT #4-HONOR YOUR FATHER AND YOUR MOTHER

HONOR YOUR FATHER AND YOUR MOTHER

THIS COMMANDMENT PLACES US IN A KIND OF “CHAIN-OF-COMMAND.” UNDER GOD, we have a serious obligation toward those whom God has placed over us in life–parents, teachers, employers, supervisors, and those whom God has called to govern.  We are not to despise or anger them, we are taught, but to respect, obey, love, and serve them–for they represent the authority of God himself in their various spheres of responsibility.  Likewise, we have a serious obligation toward those whom God has placed under us in society–children, students, employees, any whom God has placed in our care–for we bear the Name of the Lord in our dealings with them.  It is tempting to “step out of line” in either direction!

Examine the damning evidence against you today, and place every accusation over Jesus’ head on the Cross.
