GOD MORNING!!! Regard (treat with honor, due obedience, and courtesy) your father and MOTHER, that your days may be long in the land the Lord your God gives you. (Exodus 20:12 AMP)
Remember the fun children’s game MOTHER MAY I? The objective is for the children to ask permission to reach the MOTHER.
The MOTHER made the decisions based on the child’s request and would actually push the child back further if necessary. The winner is the child who reaches the MOTHER first. The bible is clear that we ought to train up a child in the way they should go. Even a simple child’s game teaches parental respect and authority.
Consider this child’s game and scripture today and honor your parents and the next time you request something of your parents, try asking in love and respect as it only increases your life!!!
PRAYER: Lord, I thank you that I will live out the number of my days. I choose to honor the MOTHER and/or father that you have placed in my life whether they are my natural parents or not. Thank You for reminding me of this special promise you placed in your word.
