Obey Parents (Ephesians 6:1-3)

Today's scriptures: Ephesians 6:1-3

God didn’t bless my husband and me with children, and He’s given me incredible peace about remaining childless. And I have to be honest … sometimes I’m a bit relieved I’m not raising a teenager these days.

It seems like many young people today aren’t familiar with this commandment to obey and honor parents. I see disrespect, disobedience, and outright rebellion—even in those who have been raised in Christian homes.

I pray regularly for teens and their parents. I pray they’ll grow strong in faith. That they’ll dwell on things that are pure and true (Philippians 4:8). That they’ll seek God’s will in all things.

And I’ll add that they will obey and honor their parents.
