Honor Your Father and Mother!

Kindness to a father will not be forgotten.

Sirach 3:14

Sirach, chapter 3, provides great advice on honoring our parents. As we are to love God and obey his commandments, the same rules apply for children to honor and obey their father and mother. We are to honor our parents, especially as they age. 

“God sets a father in honor over his children, a mother’s authority he confirms over her sons. Whoever honors his father atones for sins and preserves himself from them. When he prays, he is heard; he stores up riches who reveres his mother. Whoever honors his father is gladdened by children, and when he prays, is heard. Whoever reveres his father will live a long life; he who obeys his father brings comfort to his mother.  

My son, take care of your father when he is old; grieve him not as long as he lives. Even if his mind fails, be considerate of him; revile him not all the days of his life; kindness to a father will not be forgotten, firmly planted against the debt of your sins—a house raised in justice to you.” Honoring your father and mother is not a suggestion, it is a commandment. 

All the days of your life!
