Eph 6:2-3

2 " Honor your father and mother , " which is the first commandment accompanied by a promise, namely, 3 " that it may go well with you and that you will live a long time on the earth . " NET

Segun was having things really tough at all ends; his employer kept reducing his salary because the business was not doing well, his car burnt, and his wife had miscarriage of their baby she conceived after their 4 years of marriage. It was one disaster after another for them. Because Segun was a committed Christian, his pastor couldn't understand why these things kept going on. The pastor latter found out that Segun did not honor his father and mother, in fact, he particularly disregarded them because he said they weren't his real parents.

Segun claimed that his parents (who adopted him) never really loved him like they did their biological children, despite the fact that they trained him to university level. From the time Segun got a job, he never called or showed any form of honor to his parents; he behaved as if they did not exist. This went on for five years until God intervened through his pastor.

Things were not well with Segun because he did not honor his parents, even though they were not his biological parents.

It is clear from today's bible text that God demands we honor our parents. Anyone who has played any role of father to you deserves fatherly honor.

Go into today knowing that God is set to make all things beautiful in your life. Submit yourself to the order of Gods kingdom and all must be well, according to God’s word.

Prayer: Heavenly father, I thank you for my biological parents and everyone else you have used to help and teach me. I pray you help me honor them accordingly, in Jesus name I pray. Amen.
