Father and mother - a Christian perspective
God is there for us even when everyone else in our lives has abandoned us. Even if your own family were to forsake you, God still remains to comfort and support you.
Honor in the Bible: Exodus 20:12
The fifth of the Ten Commandments instructs us to honor our parents. Stable family relationships are important in the Bible--and while the realities of our sinful world sometimes make it impossible, whenever we can, we are called to show respect to our fathers and mothers.
