"Honor Your Father and Your Mother"
Honor. It's a duty and a virtue that is in short supply, isn't it? The Bible commands us to "give honor to whom honor is due," with both Paul and Peter commanding believers to "honor everyone" and applying that duty to various relationships in life. Such honor is rooted in the home and in God's commandment to honor our parents. This Sunday morning we learn of a duty that is foundational and formative to all of our relationships in life as we study the fifth of God's Ten Commandments.
