Radical Honour

honour

Honor your father and mother.”This is the first command that has a promise with it—“Then everything will be well with you, and you will have a long life on the earth.” Ephesians 6:2-3

If we are going to be people who make an impact for God, live all-out, hearts ablaze for Him, it’s so important we get this thing called ‘honour’ right. We don’t use this word for much today, but it simply means to respect and speak well of someone. We need to honour and respect our parents especially, because they brought us into the world, they care and look after us. It can be easy to take your parents for granted.

You may at times, clash with your parents, find it hard to honour them, you might disagree with them and find them unfair at times, but regardless of how they treat you the Bible tells us honour them. By doing this you shine Christ in your family situation. This is pleasing to God, this is radical honour!
