Honor or Obey


Along with every other commandment, the Fifth Commandment is not an easy one to follow. “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.” Exodus 20:12. Two things jump off the page with this Commandment. First, this is starting to point horizontally to our relationship with other people. Secondly, this is the only commandment with a promise. That promise is that if we follow the Commandment, our days will be long.

The main contention in our conversation this week; is honoring and obeying the same thing? Do you have to obey your parents to honor them, and if so, what does that mean for people who have a strained relationship with their parents?

Today we sipped on a Haitian coffee brought to us from a listen who when to Hati on a mission trip. Kemp started a cold brew on Sunday, and on Wednesday, it was great.

We talk all the time about our conversations backstage. For the first time, we are making those conversations available to you. For just a dollar a month, you can hear what goes on, and hear us go off the cuff. Visit us at Patreon.com/laymenscup
