Ephesians #45: "God"s Heart the Family Unit pt.4, Children" (Eph. 6:1-4)

  • Compare obey and honor:
    • To obey is to heed and conform to authority, while to honor is to show respect and love. 
    • This command to honor is a continuation of Paul’s summary to husbands and wives in the end of Ephesians 5 vs 33: each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
    • How much easier is it for children to display love and respect when the parents first model it, as God commands?
