Loving Our Family
A child’s love for his father and mother shows itself in submission to their authority and receptiveness to their instruction, as God commands (Eph. 6:1–3). A child can honor his parents rightly only by faith, in union and communion with Jesus Christ (“in the Lord,” v. 1). Sons and daughters, are you like branches that abide in the vine (John 15:5), drawing love for your parents from Jesus Christ by faith?
