Relationships - The Next Generation Exodus 20:12; Ephesians 6:1–4 The fundamental relationship of life is the child to the parents. It is the relationship that they get their first view of God. “How I treat my parents who I can see is the foundational training for how I treat the Lord whom I can’t see.” Responsibilities of Children Obey – ACTION Why is so hard to obey? Curse in them Corruption around them Culture coming down upon them. Honor – Attitude Rewards for Children Quality – That is may be well with Thee Quantity – Thou mayest live long on the earth Many adults are suffering the consequences of disobedience and dishonor Many children are going unprepared into life because no one is making them obey or honor. We must have a renewed commitment to raise children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
