Relationships 101: Parents

Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’ The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Mark 12:29-31a NLT)

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” – which is the first commandment with a promise – “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.” (Ephesians 6:1-3 NIV)

We develop a loving relationship with our parents by giving them…


1) Love

2) Loyalty

3) Latitude


So give your father and mother joy! May she who gave you birth be happy. (Proverbs 23:25 NLT)
