Honor Your Parents and Authorities
September 3, 2021 • Exodus 20:12
The fifth commandment is proof that God cares about our families. At first glance, it may seem like God is only providing direction for children, but the fifth commandment has implications for those in authority too. Join Groundwork in studying God’s command to “honor your father and mother” and together we’ll examine scripture to better understand what this commandment means for children, for parents, for our spiritual life, and for our relationship with other authority figures. And because abuse of power and broken family relationships can make this commandment particularly painful for some of us, we’ll discuss what this commandment means and what it looks like to honor it in situations of abusive authority too.
