The foundation for all of mankind and society is to be properly aligned in a love relationship with God, that is demonstrated in loving others.
We need to give weight and reverence to our relationships of where we came from, starting with our parents.
Whether your parents are in-laws or outlaws God has called us to give them honor even if they have done us harm directly or indirectly.
We should honor those in the body of Christ, especially individuals who helped contribute to our discipleship in Christ.
Recognize and remember all God has done for you with your parents and be thankful.
Learn what it means to be submitted to your heavenly father by being submitted to your earthly parents.
Seek to honor God, honor your parents, and let God honor you. Don’t look for that honor from others.
