“Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.” (Exodus 20:12)
God’s divine emphasis on honoring parents — in this case, our mothers — is shown by the fact that the first commandment that appears after those which address our honoring of God is the commandment establishing a child’s relationship with their parents.
Honor, what does this mean? Words like love, respect and obey should immediately come to mind, just as they should when thinking about honoring God.
