Honor your Mother, Father, & God’s Will (Ephesian 6)

8675570480_7747c460ab_b_jlwo_childchillinbibleChildren, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.   “Honor your father and mother”–which is the first commandment with a promise– “that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”  Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. 

In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Ephesians 6:1-4; Ephesians 6:16-17 (NIV)
