Honor your Parents
“Honor your father and mother”- which is the first commandment with a promise. Ephesians 6:2
This is a great video (it’s in Chinese Cantonese dialect though) to remind us to show love and concern to our parents while we still have them with us.
A story was told of an elderly father continued to call his daughter’s mobile, wanting to listen to her voice to leave a message after the “peep”………although he knows so well that his daughter died in a car accident 3 years ago. The mobile company allowed this unusual service to continue because they care.
Young people have lots of treasures; endless laughter with friends to enjoy , glittering lights in shopping malls to behold, challenging career ladder to climb, satisfying hobbies to pursue……..
How about your elderly papa and mama? When the children are not around, the only treasure they possess is the memories of the time they spent together with you and the sweet voices rang in their hearts.
Dear friends, no matter how busy you are, how much misunderstanding and argument you might have before with your parents, would you just give a call and say hello to them – this is the only treasure they are having at this age.
