OBEY YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER SO THAT YOUR DAYS WILL BE LONGER IN THE LAND (by benaiah juma).
Eph 6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
Eph 6:2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)
Eph 6:3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
The relationship that you have with your parents is very important to God. The way you look at your parents on earth affects the way you look at the father in heaven. If you have an awkward relationship with your earthly parents it will affect the relationship that you have with God. God is pleased when we obey our parents. If you obey your father and mother you will receive blessings from God because obedience to your parents is a commandment from God and something that the lord Jesus Christ appreciates when we fulfill.
Disobedience to parents is a sin and has led many people to go to the pit after their death. When you obey your parents’ things will likely go well with you due to blessings from God and the years of your life will be long because God will protect you from the wicked one so that the wicked one will not prevail in harming you. If you disrespect your parents you are likely not going to be able to live half of your days assigned to you by God because demons will have access to your life and curses will be following you wherever you go which may in turn cause something bad to happen to you, for example you can be involved in an accident, or you can contact serious illness, or you can be involved in an incident that may shock you to the extent that you loose your life.
Once the devil is into your life because of disobedience to parents, they will bring in their agenda into your life. As you know the chief mission of the devil is to kill, steal and to destroy, they will try to accomplish this mission in your life. God is the author of this this commandment, when you fulfill it, you honor God, but if you do not fulfill it but instead you dishonour your parents and cause them trouble you dishonor God. God can only be shown respect by anyone who keeps the commandments. Those who love God keep his commandments. God instructed children to obey their parents, when children obey their parents they honor God, on the contrary when children disobey their parents they dishonour God because God is the one who issued that commandment. Sin is directed towrads God. Disobeying parents shortens the lifespan of disobedient children.
We are allowed to obey our parents in all things except if they are leading us in the wrong paths of death and hell. We are not allowed to renounce Jesus Christ or do abominable things in the name of obeying our parents. But any good advice that they offer us that is in line with the word of God, we are supposed to keep it to please our father in heaven. We are not allowed to follow our parents when they lead us into false religions such as Islam, Roman Catholicism, Hinduism, New Age Christianity and so forth. When you obey your parents when they give you good advice or when they give you an instruction that pleases God and you keep it, their soul is pleased with you and you will receive automatic blessings from them even though they don’t bless you with their lips because their soul is comforted, but if you disobey your parents you will receive curses because their soul is grieved because of your deeds and actions.
Love and practice to obey your parents for this is pleasing to the lord. If your parents tell you to wash dishes do it, if your parents send you to the shop do it, if your parents give you or assign a job for you to do, do it without arguing for the father in heaven sees you and he will for sure reward you for your obedience. Parents should again issue instructions that are relevant and pleasant to God. Parents are not allowed to provoke their children to anger. Parents should take care of their children by not offending them or overusing their children to the extent that their children get mad. Parents should take care of their children and children should respect their parents. Brethren and children in Christ Jesus let us practice to obey our parents for this is pleasing to God. Thanks.
