Honor for a Lifetime
Laws that Liberate

The fifth of the 10 Laws that Liberate shift the focus from God to other people and in particular, to two significant people, our father and our mother. Why? God has a very specific reason: so that we will have a long life or as Paul puts it, “. . . so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.” But what if I don’t respect my parents? What if they’ve hurt me, what then? God’s word has the why and the how to this life-giving commandment.
