1Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2 “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— 3 “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.” 4 Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.

This Week’s Sermon Reflection:
- How am I equipping and empowering my family to help discover their calling in God?
- How have I helped the children of our church discover their identity in Christ?
- How can I reach out to someone of a different generation and both minister to them and learn from them?
Just as Christ has called those who are married to submit to each other out of reverence for Christ, He calls for every family member to submit to each other as well. Our families are called to more than just behavior and moral improvement, we are called to help our families discover their identity in Christ.
