God’s people were commanded to honour their parents. How much has this idea been lost in today’s society? Is it still important?
But above that, Jesus calls people to get rid of anything that would prevent them following Him, and for Him to be first in our lives. Are there things that are stopping you do this, are you prepared to get rid of them?
Reading: Matthew 19:16-22
Questions to think about:
- What place does “honour” have in our society today?
- What does “honouring parents” mean to you – recognising the different situations we are in?
- Are there things that are stopping us honouring God, following Jesus, as we should?
