Being obedient is rewarding.

Ephesians 6:3 (NLT)

3 If you honor your father and mother, “things will go well for you, and you will have a long life on the earth.”

It is fashionable to blame one’s problems on one’s family of origin. How convenient.

I believe one of the importances, however, of a healthy respect of Mom and Dad, is the establishment of a right relationship with God. The household is the training ground for accepting God’s authority and the authority endowed to government servants.
