Matthew 15:4



Matthew 15:4 – For God commanded, saying, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’


And now, Admonition.

In Matthew chapter 15 in verse four we read this, For God commanded saying, honor your father and your mother and he who curses father or mother, let him be put to death. Here in this passage, Jesus is quoting the old Testament and Jesus is saying, this is a commandment from God under the law of Moses — under the law that the Jews lived under in Matthew chapter 15 and this was a requirement of God’s people to honor their father and their mother.

But did you realize that this word honor isn’t talking about you? You speak to them respectfully. Oh, it certainly involves that — It involves respect, but that’s not what Jesus is saying — Jesus is saying, and the law was saying, when your parents get to an age where they are in need of your assistance, your help, your support, your financial assistance you provide for them. If you have parents who are older, are you honoring your parents?
