Day 178 – Honor Your Parents


Trace Disrespect to Dishonor

A frustrated father appealed to me for counsel, saying, “What am I doing wrong? I have taught my children the Bible, but they just won’t respect or obey me.”

I asked him, “Growing up, were you respectful and obedient to your parents?”

There was silence as he thought a few moments before responding: “I think so. I was not really that rebellious.”

I decided to approach the question from a different perspective. “If I were to ask your father and mother, ‘Was your son respectful and obedient to you,’ what would they say?”

He immediately answered, “They would say, ‘No.’”
