HONOUR YOUR FATHER
Fathers make mistakes. Fathers grow old and no longer have the strength that made their sons love them. While they may have the heart, the body winds down.
Paul, in jail, the man who clothed many now needs a cloak – II Tim 4:13.
But a son will:
– Honour your father that your days be long (Ex 20:12), vs You curse your father and you will die (Matt 15:4).
– Manifestation of honour is substantial (Prov 3:9; II Chron 17:5; I Tim 5: 3, 17, 18) vs just lip service (Is 29:13).
– Wait for his right of inheritance vs Saul took Samuel’s place (I Sam 15:22).
Despite all the failures that have happened in fatherhood, fathers should not despair. Restart by looking at where things went wrong and correcting them.
