Exodus 20:12 – Honor your father and your mother, so that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.
I have known many people like me who share wonderful relationships with their parents. Others I know have had difficult family stories. So whether your parents are biological or you have been fortunate enough to have honorary but non-biological parents, our passage today instructs us to maintain a connection to those good people in our past.
Parent God, help us to honor those who came before us whose goodness continues to influence us today. Amen.
