TEXT: Ephesians 6:1-4(NKJV)
Daily Fountain Devotional 16 July 2022 MESSAGE
Our passage today shows how Paul pointed out the responsibilities of children in the home – they are to obey their parents with unreserved respect. In other words, they must carry out the instructions of their parents without rebuffing.
Quoting from the Old Testament, Paul emphasised that it is the first commandment with a promise of long life and prosperity (vv. 1-3; Exodus 20:12). That is, obedient children will live to fulfil their days on the land of the living and prosper in all they do.
In our present days, many parents are facing lots of troubles and challenges in raising their children in the way of the Lord. Many children have become thorns in the flesh of their parents and the society.
Children who are supposed to be the heritage of the Lord now respond willingly to the devil in their acts and conducts. As a Christian child, you should be different and obedient to your parents. Some children are in the habit of talking back at their parents; they are stubborn and have become uncontrollable.
You should not join such children whose ways of life are against the will of God. You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood and a peculiar treasure of the living God (1Pet. 2:9). Learn to obey and honour your parents and it shall be well with you.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus Christ, come into my life and give me the Spirit of obedience to Your commandment, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
