Honour thy father and mother

Gordon and Joyce Palmer with children Patty, Susie and Cathy (1952)

Today, on KSVY 91.3 radio here in Sonoma we will be talking about the 5th commandment:

Ex 20:12
"Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee."

And Paul wrote in Ephesians 6:
1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
2 Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Families are important and I am thankful for mine. My parents did the best they could and helped me in many ways. Yes, they made mistakes - who hasn't? But over the years I have learned forgive and be thankful. May you have a wonderful week with your family!
