Isaiah 30:12-33:12; Galatians 5:1-12; Psalm 63:1-11; Proverbs 23:22
“Listen to your father, who gave you life,
and do not despise your mother when
she is old.”
Honor your mother and your father.
“What does this mean?”
It means that
“we should fear and love God
so that we do not despise or anger our parents
and other authorities,
but honor them,
serve and obey them,
love and cherish them.”
(Luther’s Small Catechism)
help us to keep the Fourth Commandment.
Bless and preserve our family relationships
that your Name may be glorified.
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
