Just a thought to ponder during this season:It is an awesome thing to know that our parents decided to give us life. Parenting doesn’t come with a manual so no matter how we were raised we should always honor our parents and not misuse them. According to what is written this is a commandment. It saddens my heart when I see abuse of parents at the hands of their children. Let us pray that we not only speak this truth but we LIVE it.
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
“He answered and said to them, “Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition? For God commanded, saying, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’ But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me is a gift to God ”— then he need not honor his father or mother.’ Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition. Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth, And honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me.”
Matthew 15:3-8 NKJV
