Honor and Obedience

This coming Lord's Day we will continue our application of the fifth commandment. Our love for others, which flows out of our love for God, will manifest itself first and foremost in our relationship with the natural superiors that God has given to us - our parents. We must honor them, and this honor includes the necessity of obedience until we reach our maturity. There is no other lesson so crucial for a young child to learn as yielding a glad submission to his parents.
