Children and Parents
Children, obey your parents because you belong to the Lord, for this is the right thing to do. “Honor your father and
mother.” This is the first commandment with a promise: If you honor your father and mother, “things will go well for you,
and you will have a long life on the earth.”
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and
instruction that comes from the Lord.
