7 Things The Bible Says About Relationships

Relationship with Parents

Ephesians 6:1-3 “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.  “Honor your father and mother”–which is the first commandment with a promise–”that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”

The Fifth Commandment, the first given that relates to humans relationship with humans, started with honoring our parents.

If we honor our parents, even when we ourselves are adults, God promises that “it may go well” with us and we can “enjoy a long life on earth” because if we dishonor our parents, we are really dishonoring our God.

All right relationships on this earth begin with honoring our parents and having a God-honoring relationship with them.
