Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.
The Fifth Commandment is a commandment that affects all of human society. Children learn to respect and obey authority figures at home with their parents. If they fail to learn this useful skill at home, all of society will suffer. It is essential for children to treat their parents with respect. They should speak to them in a respectful manner, act respectfully, speak respectfully, and even think of their parents respectfully. They should obey their parents in everything, except if their parents tell them to do something that is against God’s law. Parents have great responsibility also. They must teach their children to be respectful and to obey, and they must teach their children everything that the children need to know about God’s law and about the gospel of Jesus Christ.
