The Bible always instructs us to honor our parents. If you are privileged enough to have parents who know and Love God, pay attention to their counsel. Their words are designed to benefit you and not bring you down – as long as they are inspired by God. You can also apply this advice to any mother or father figure you have in your life.
And we pray:
Dear God, I thank You for the parents and guardians You have given me who are concerned about You and Your will for their lives and my life. Father, may You help me to pay attention to their instructions and their advice. I desire to honor my parents because I know it brings You honor too. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
