Ephesians 6:1 says for the “Children obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor thy Father and Mother…”
Do our children have a submissive spirit and good attitude, obeying from the heart, or are they just doing as we say with a resentful, resisting spirit? If they have the wrong attitude or spirit, they may be obeying but they are not “honoring” in their obedience. Honor for the parent will give the right attitude and a sweet submissive spirit in their obedience.
Is this the attitude we have in our obedience to the Lord? Do we honor the Lord, giving Him the sweet obedience that He deserves? Are we honoring Him as we obey and serve? Maybe our children will learn this best by example? Are we as wives honoring our husbands?
