6:1 Children, obey your parents in the
Lord: for this is right.


.

6:2 Honour
thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;

it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

MESSAGE:
Children
are assets of the Almighty God entrusted to our care. We must therefore ensure
that we do all we can to nurture them for the Lord and not for ourselves. We
should strive to receive commendation from the Lord for our efforts in bringing
them up as children He can be proud of. Raising children in today’s world is
serious business. Unfortunately, we live in a world where parents have left to
chance or entirely neglected the huge tasking of bringing up their children in
the fear of the Lord. OPEN HEAVEN 12 October 2017: Thursday daily devotional by
Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Obedient Children. Many parents justify themselves by concluding
that they are helpless, and they shift the blame of their own failures to the
happenings in the society. In the time of father Abraham, there were also
parents who did not bring up their children to follow the path of God, but for
Abraham, his testimony was different. God said this concerning him in Genesis 18:19:

“For I know him, that he will
command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way
of the LORD, to do justice and judgement; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham
that which he hath spoken of him.”

If
you want to raise children who will be obedient to the Lord, you must be ready
to start right from the beginning of the child’s life. That is what parenting
is all about. It involves training and educating a child from the phase of
infancy through to adulthood. Open Heavens video If you carry out the job of parenting as unto the
Lord, you will be well rewarded by Him. There are many parents who realise late
in life that they have neglected their roles as parents. In order to make
amends, some of them begin to make efforts at “repairing” the lives of their
children, but at that point, they discover it has become a herculean task.

.
Obedient
children are godly children, committed to a life of honesty in all they do.
Such children will never bring shame, reproach or embarrassment to the God of
their fathers, because they have a deep understanding of the covenant upon
which they have been groomed. There are parents today who have lost control of
their children. Some other parents have turned their children into symbols of
idolatry. They fear their children more than they fear God. May that not be
your portion in Jesus’ Name. Obedient children must honour their parents. They
must respect them irrespective of their status in society, if they want to live
a life without regret. When their parents need their attention or help, they
must be there for them. They must also be ready to submit wilfully to their
instructions, corrections and rebuke. There are children who bring sorrow to
their parents. On the other hand, children of destiny bring great comfort to
everyone around them. Are you a child of destiny?
Prayer Point:
Father, let my children please
You always, and grant me grace to care for my parents.
