Welcome to another episode of our daily bible study, today’s episode is titled, honoring your parents and elders. you can watch the video below;
In the last episode of our daily bible study, we discussed the message titled, do righteousness and justice. We learned how important it is for us to do righteousness and justice.
The book of exodus chapter 21 enumerated the various civil laws given to us by God, if we take these laws seriously and govern our society based on the principles of those laws, we will definitely have a crime-free society.
The book of Psalm 19 verses 7 to 11 says the following; The law of the LORD is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making the wise simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the LORD are firm, and all of them are righteous.
They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb. By them your servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward.
The bottom-line is that, there is great reward for us when keep the laws, precepts and commandments of God.
That episode discusses a lot about keeping righteousness and justice, if you have not watched the video, you can watch it after watching today’s episode. The video is in the playlist.
In today’s episode, we will discuss the message titled, honoring your parents and elders.
Our society has lost it when it comes to honoring parents, it is not uncommon to see kids insulting their parents and being disobedient to their elders. The book of Exodus chapter 21 verse 17 says, anyone who curses their mother or their father is to be put to death.
Dishonoring one’s parents is an offence that carries a capital punishment according to God. This is to tell you how grievous the offence can be. Unfortunately, kids of today do not know that. In as much as the custodians of the biblical laws will not met out death penalty to anyone that curses their parents, nevertheless, it is important that children understand how bad an offence it is for one to not respect and honor their parents, or how terrible an offence it is for one to curse or disobey their parents.
This correctional and admonishing message goes to not only kids, but to all of us. We take God as our father; we can then ask ourselves how many times we disobey and dishonor God every day.
As children of God, we should honor our creator by keeping His laws and ordinances, just as we would do to our earthly father. You cannot claim you have respect for God when you fail to listen to His commands and keep His instructions. This episode of our daily bible study teaches us the need to respect and honor, not only our earthly father and mother, but God Himself. Learn to heed to God’s commandments; for the scriptures says, fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the only duty of man.
May God rain down the blessings of a father unto us as we strive to honor and obey Him.
