“Children, be obedient to your parents in all things, for this is well-pleasing to the Lord.”

Today’s devotion comes from Ephesians 6:1-4.

“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.  HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER (which is the first commandment with a promise), SO THAT IT MAY BE WELL WITH YOU, AND THAT YOU MAY LIVE LONG ON THE EARTH.

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”  Ephesians 6:1-4.

Consider the following from the Heidelberg Catechism.

Q. 104.  What doth God require in the fifth commandment?

A.  That I show all honor, love, and fidelity to my father and mother and all in authority over me, and submit myself to their good instruction and correction with due obedience;  and also patiently bear with their weaknesses and infirmities, since it pleases God to govern us by their hand.

Consider a recent sermon that I heard online on this subject and the following Colossians 3:20 text by Rev. Wilbur Bruinsma of the Pittsburgh Protestant Reformed Church.  The sermon was titled “The Calling of Covenant Children” and was given at the Sunday Service on 8/23/2020.  Here is a direct link to the video of it –
