There is blessing in heeding our parents' instruction


My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: for they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck. Proverbs 1:8-9

God has placed our parents over us for our good, to teach us to know the LORD God and His Word and to correct us when we stray from His ways. It is indeed wise to hear the instruction of our fathers and to heed the law taught us by our mothers when they teach and guide us in the ways of the LORD, for it brings us rich blessing.

Grant that I honor and heed the instruction of my parents, O LORD, that I might learn Thy ways and walk according to Thy Word. Amen.
