Listen to Your Parents
"Listen, my son, to your father's instruction and do not forsake your mother's teaching."
God gave me parents for protection and correction until I can function by myself. They program me with correct and acceptable actions and reactions until I can make my own decisions.
My parents would never allow me to do something that would harm me. They would never tell me to do something that would be wrong or damaging to me.
I WILL LISTEN TO MY PARENTS BECAUSE THEY ARE SET IN AUTHORITY BY GOD.
Proverbs 1:8 NIV
Honor Your Parents
"Honor your father and motherwhich is the first commandment with a promise that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth."
My parents (whatever their age) deserve my respect and honor. Long life is for those who keep this commandment.
I WILL HONOR MY FATHER AND MY MOTHER. THEY ARE WORTH OF MY RESPECT.
Ephesians 6:2-3 NIV
Know His Peace
My children are my life. I desire that they know the Lord and His peace.
"All your sons will be taught by the Lord, and great will be your children's peace."
WHAT BETTER BLESSING FOR MY CHILDREN THAN TO BE TAUGHT BY THE LORD AND KNOW HIS PEACE!
Walk As You Were Brought Up
The early years of a child are very important to his later life.
"Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it."
I WILL REMEMBER HOW I WAS BROUGHT UP AND WILL WALK IN THAT WAY.
Proverbs 22:6 KJV
Look Like Your Father
We always try to figure out whom the baby looks like.
"As for me I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness."
I WANT TO LOOK JUST LIKE MY FATHER!
Psalm 17:15 Amplified
The Foundation of Your Home
What is the foundation upon which your house is built?
"Through skillful and godly Wisdom is a house (a life, a home, a family) built, and by understanding it is established on a sound and good foundation."
GODLY WISDOM IS THE FOUNDATION OF MY HOME.
Proverbs 24:3 Amplified
Our wise parents desire a good life for us. Their counsel helps us avoid many pitfalls.
"The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, that one may avoid the snares of death."
I WILL LISTEN TO MY PARENTS BECAUSE THEY DESIRE ONLY THE BEST FOR ME.
Proverbs 13:14 Amplified
Your Children, A Priceless Heritage
My children - a priceless heritage!
"Lo, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. As arrows are in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one' s youth. Happy, blessed and fortunate is the man whose quiver is filled with them!"
MY CHILDREN SHALL RISE UP AND CALL ME BLESSED BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN A BLESSING TO THEM.
Psalm 127:3-5a Amplified
Grandchildren, a Crown of Life
My grandchildren are precious because they are the offspring of my children.
"Children's children are the crown of old men."
I WILL ENJOY MY GRANDCHILDREN AS A CROWN OF LIFE.
Proverbs 17:6a KJV
A Husband's Duty
A husband's duty is to provide for and protect his wife. What about those women with no husband? Who will provide for and protect them?
"For thy Maker is thine husband."
THE LORD PROVIDES FOR ME AS A HUSBAND
