Bible Verses and Scripture for Your Parents

Honor your father and mother – Ephesians 6:2

Prayer For My ParentsHonoring your parents is mandated by God’s commandment. Filial piety stems from a sense of gratitude for your parents who brought you into the world.

This simple commandment, found in the Book of Ephesians, speaks to the heart of what it means to be a good son or daughter. To honor our parents is to show them respect and love, and to strive to live up to their example.

It is also to support them in their time of need, whether that be financially, emotionally, or spiritually. By honoring our parents, we not only fulfill a divine commandment but also strengthen the bond of love between us.

In doing so, we bring joy and blessing to our lives and to the lives of those who raised us and to who we owe so much.

Children, be obedient to your parents in all things, for this is well-pleasing to the Lord. – Colossians 3:20

Part of that honoring means being obedient and listening to your parents. In today’s society, there is a lot of emphases placed on individual rights and independence. However, the Bible reminds us that we are to honor and respect our parents. This includes being obedient to them.

When we are obedient to our parents, we are showing honor and respect for their authority. We are also acknowledging that they know what is best for us. This doesn’t mean that we always agree with them or that we don’t have a voice of our own. But it does mean that we submit to their authority and follow their teachings.

If we do disagree with them, express your concerns but do so from a place of love and respect as they deserve.

A wise son makes a father glad, But a foolish man despises his mother. – Proverbs 15:20

This particular verse from Proverbs speaks to the importance of respecting and honoring one’s parents. A wise son or daughter is a source of joy and pride to their parents, while a foolish child brings shame and disappointment.

This verse serves as a reminder that we should always show love and appreciation for our parents, even when they make mistakes. It is only through their unconditional support that we are able to grow and thrive in this world. By honoring our parents, we are also honoring the wisdom of the Bible and following the words of God.
