Ephesians 6:2-3 (NKJV) 2 “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: 3 “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”

As born-again believers, we are set free from the burden of the Mosaic Law or the Law of Moses. The burden of sin, which is death. Because as Christians we are not under the Law, rather we live by grace. But that doesn’t mean we can break the Law. We are told according to the Law to Honor our father and mother, even as an adult. How do we honor our parents? We honor them by the life that we live. Honoring your father and mother is the first commandment with a promise. Those who keeps this commandment are promised a long life. The other commandments promised something if they were not kept, but this commandment promises a long life if it is kept. My friend, do you want to live long and prosper? Then honor your father and mother. And in doing so, you will also live a life for Christ.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
