The first four commandments have to do with honoring God and trusting him in heart, soul and mind. The last six honor God by doing right by others. The first is aimed at two individuals—our father and mother.
Exodus 20: 12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
Ephesians 6: 1Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 2 Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; 3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
From the voice of God on Mount Sinai God gives his will, his Word, to Moses. The beginning of his law is these Ten Commandments. God deliberately chose this as the fifth. It’s the first commandment with a special blessing and sets the course for our obedience to all the remaining ones. The evidence of God’s place in our hearts shows in how we treat each other. He said we shouldn’t kill, steal or covet but first said honor your father and mother. This is the cornerstone and bedrock of society and civilization, not just here in the U.S. but the whole earth.
Without the organization of the home there can be no strength in the nation or a happy society. Things just get out of sorts. Even those who promote re-defining the home sense that civilization is on the brink of collapse. There is little to no structure in homes. Fully structured homes are few and far between. There is no limit people won’t go to in destroying the true home. Now that means anything and everything. Family units can consist of any structure whatsoever and be promoted and advertised. Even with progression of learning and technology it should add up with glory to God. The Bible plainly tells us that God created male and female and they would make children. Now two men can be husband and wife and adopt. Two women can be husband and wife and do the same. No matter what you call it, its rock bottom. They cannot procreate. People are changing their physical anatomy to be something else. This too is promoted. We are at the world’s end; the Sodom and Gomorrah wrath is about to fall. Regardless, remember what God said. He made us all male or female. It doesn’t matter what people say. There is no real fulfillment in this and they lie if they say there is. We have buried our own souls and won’t listen to God.
Be thankful you’re a Christian mother with an understanding of God’s Word. Do your best. Pray and ask God to help you be a godlier mother. This is enemy territory in today’s society. The Bible structure is the only way that will work. Determine for your children’s sake to be a real mother, grandmother, and aunt. Regardless of what your neighbor or the world does draw the line. There is one definition of marriage. There is one definition of father. There is one definition of mother. All else brings confusion and is an abomination. It’s committing suicide to happiness. Outside the house of God, the most precious place is our house. It’s where we belong. There is no place like home.
Be thankful for a godly father and mother. Be thankful for your children. None of us is perfect. We are saved. We have common sense. Clear mindedness is missing today. Determine to honor your father and mother to your last breath. Determine to guide your children and be the best mom and dad they can have. Be a Christian. All it takes is one family member to start it. Rescue your family from hell and turn the family around. Determine to honor father and mother; children, determine to honor your parents. When we honor this we honor our home. That’s a witness to the community; it’s an asset.
Let the light shine! The only hope for our country is to get down to business and be the family member God wants us to be. Honour thy father and thy mother. It’s a life that matters and counts with God.
