Topic: HONOUR YOUR PARENT (Don't Be Distracted)
Our most gracious father in the highest, we thank you this morning for life again in Jesus name. Amen. Dear Lord we pray for your mercy, favour, protection and every good blessings in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen. Thank you in Jesus name. Amen.
Jesus at a point when the Pharisees and the saducees came to Jesus about certain tradition of hand washing before eating. He put there consciousness to the principle and law of God mostly as regard care, respect, love and honour to parents. This was reference to the charge God gave Moses to share with the people as recorded in the Leviticus 20:9, but the people re-branded it for their selfish Interest.
"Yes, God tells us the right way to obey him’, Jesus replied. ‘But you do not obey God. Instead, you do the things that you have taught the people to do. Moses wrote in his law, “God says that you must love your father and mother. Do good things for them and only say good things about them.” God also said, “Someone should kill a person who says bad things about his own father or mother.” But instead of obeying this, you teach people something different. You let a person say to his father or mother, “I would have given these good gifts to you, but I cannot. Instead, I have given them to God.” Then, you let him give nothing to his mother and father. When you let a person do this, you have not obeyed God’s Law. You have obeyed the laws of your ancestors instead. You do many other things like this." Matthew 15&3-6 (EasyEnglish)
Friend, you cannot say you want to please God in the expense of our parent's care. You know why? God is not an author of confusion. He mandated that we respect, honour and love our parent with all our substance and sincerely care for them. The rightful care for our parent should not be diverted for God, that is wickedness and Godly. Goof morning.
I pray for the grace to do the needful and rightful for you in Jesus name. Amen. Every power of distractions working you out of your God given purpose is taken away from you in Jesus mighty name. Amen. You shall receive this day in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
