With the God-given design for family changing and morphing faster and
faster away from Biblical principles, this commandment to honor our father
and mother is becoming more of a fairy-tale, once upon a time.
Thanks for joining us for Faith-Filled Friday with Debra Dolce and Trench
Classes United. Today’s love letter is a great reminder that not only is our
God a God of order, but He also knew this would be a tough thing to do in
our ever-changing culture, which is why He sealed it with a promise.
My love, honor your father and mother, and love those around you as you love yourself.
This instruction is very important in your life.
To honor is a commitment to respect and love. That doesn't mean agreeing with
everything they choose. You honor and respect your parents for who they are, but you
follow and worship Me.
Scripture says to have no other gods before Me. When you love and worship Me then
you can do all these other things. It is My love that changes your heart, even expands
its capacity to love those around you.
All those you struggle with I can help you when you come and ask Me and as you rely
on Me, My strength becomes your strength and will walk you through these struggles
with those you are called to honor. I am always with you helping you to love no matter
what the circumstances are.
I know the hardship some suffer from the hands of another. Do you see My love for My
betrayer and those that crucified Me? The secret is it has more to do with you and I than
it does about you and them.
Beloved, the secret to living offense free is surrendering everything to Me and letting
every other thing fall by the wayside.
