November 2nd News- Honor Your Father and Mother

Series: The Heart of the Ten Commandments

This week we will look at the fifth commandment found in Exodus 20:12…

Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

This week we move from the first four commandments that show how we are to love and relate to God to the second six commandments that show how we are to love and relate to others.

For many, this commandment is particularly difficult to process because they may not have had a parental experience that could be described as honorable. With that reality, how can we approach this commandment with the intent on discovering why God gave it. I do not think we can ignore it- but how can we move forward amidst the many emotions involved.

The first thing we must do is to rely on the Holy Spirit to teach, guide, reveal, and heal. My prayer is that we gain an understanding on God’s intent and then contemplate why this can be so difficult to obey.

Please ponder this commandment before Sunday. Take some time to think about your own experiences- but also reflect on how we can live out this commandment in the midst of our questions and challenges.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
