I was sharing with a Christian brother sometime ago concerning giving respect to parents and the brother amazed me. He ask what if my father do not respect himself? I told him the the scriptures do not give any alternative to respect your parent and no conditions to of he did not respect himself. Brethren let check the record of Apostle Paul while addressing the church in Colosse.
"Children, it is your Christian duty to obey your parents always, for that is what pleases God." Colossians 3:20 (GNT)
It is a responsibility and a duty to honour your parents under every situations or circumstances. For no r we qson should you deny or refuse this responsibility or duty. It is a mandate and an obligation to obey the instructions of our parents and honour them in everything so that the promises of God that has to do or associated with fulfilling that duty might be ours.
I pray may you enjoy full package of the promises of God relating to honouring your parents in Jesus name. Amen. Have a wonderful weekend in Jesus name. Amen. Good morning.
Prophet Johnson Oluwagbenga Adeniyi.
