BENEFITS WHEN YOU HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER!

We are living in an age of disobedience. Broken home, children running wild without purpose in life. In this outline we show some of the blessings in honoring father and mother.

Exodus 20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy

days may be long upon the land which the

LORD thy God giveth thee.

I. It is very important to honor your father and mother.

A. The benefits are wonderful.

1. It brings long life.

Deut 5:16 Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD

thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may

be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

2. The blessing goes everywhere. It is for every land and

place.

a. I know it has followed me.

B. It is not just old but New Testament teaching.

Eph 6:2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first

commandment with promise;)

1. Paul reminds it is the first commandment with a promise from God.

II One of the signs of the last days is rebellion and disobedience.

Prov 1:8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and

forsake not the law of thy mother:

A. Disobedience reaps terrible results

Matt 15:4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father

and mother: and, He that curseth father or

mother, let him die the death.

Lev 20:9 For every one that curseth his father or his

mother shall be surely put to death: he hath

cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall

be upon him.

Prov 28:24 Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and

saith, It is no transgression; the same is the

companion of a destroyer.

B. God's Will for children is to:

1. Love and care for their father and mother

Prov 23:22 Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and

despise not thy mother when she is old. .

a. Jesus is our perfect example toward His mother.

John 19:26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the

disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith

unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! .

John 19:27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy

mother! And from that hour that disciple took

her unto his own home.

b. Jesus cared and provided for His earthy mother.

III. Mothers should love, care and pray for their children.

A. Want the best for their children.

Matt 20:20 Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's

children with her sons, worshipping him, and

desiring a certain thing of him. .

Matt 20:21 And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She

saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons

may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the

other on the left, in thy kingdom. .

1. Sometimes children do not realize it.

Prov 4:3 For I was my father's son, tender and only

beloved in the sight of my mother.

IV. Need for fathers and mothers to be examples. Cannot say do as I say and not as I do.

Ezek 16:44 Behold, every one that useth proverbs shall

use this proverb against thee, saying, As is

the mother, so is her daughter.

A. Bad example.

Matt 14:8 And she, being before instructed of her mother,

said, Give me here John Baptist's head in a
