Create Your Own Future  Exodus 20:12 NLT

Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

Proverbs 19:26 NLT

Children who mistreat their father or chase away their mother are an embarrassment and a public disgrace.

Why Honor Your Parents?  Colossians 3:20 NLT

Children, always obey your parents, for this pleases the Lord.

John 14:21 NLT

Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.

How Should I Honor My Parents?  Psalms 139:13-16 NLT

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. 15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. 16 You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.

John 15:12-14 NLT

This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. 13 There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command.

Philippians 4:8-9 NLT

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. 9 Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.
