Presented by Evan Stewart (00:16)
The commandment to honor mom, command number five, is the first of the ten commandments which deals with relationships between people. When you honor someone, you regard them with great respect. Can you say that you respect your mom? If you don’t, you might have reasons to act that way. If you do honor your mom, the next question is, does your mom know it?
Show honor to moms and you show honor to God. To honor her is to recognize the dignity given her by God, thereby honoring God and setting yourself up for honor to God in other ways. If I honor my mom, I honor God. Practicing honor is a practice to love others more and harm them less. Jesus said all the Law is summed up in two commands, “Love God and love others”. Showing honor to mothers helps us fulfill that law and obey God.
Be encouraged as Evan reminds why honoring motherhood is so important.
