Honor Your Father and Mother - the Fifth Commandment

Exodus 20:12  (ID: 0520)

Throughout the Bible, God is straightforward about His model for the family unit: He intends for it to be the foundation for how we relate with all of humanity. Examining the fifth commandment, Alistair Begg challenges adults and children alike to show real love, true obedience, and continued interest in others’ well-being in our parent-child relationships. Through our pursuit of godliness, we can directly impact society as we guide the moral and spiritual development of our families.


12“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.
