Fifth Commandment

Fifth Commandment

Honor Parents

The 5th Commandment: “Honor your father and your mother” (Ex 20:12). This is the first of the Ten Commandments that has a promise attached, “that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth” (Eph 6:2-3). The word “honor” means to respect, to place high value, to consider a prized possession. Honor your parents this week. It’s the right thing to do and you will benefit.
