Ephesians Study Day 21

We’re in chapter 6! And after talking about mutuality with husbands and wives, now Paul talks about respect and restraint in raising children. As you listen to the video you’ll see how these words were radically different from how children were raised in Paul’s time! We might not think much of them, but wow – they were a huge departure from the way children were raised back then. Here are the verses from 6:1-4:

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother – this is the first commandment with a promise: “so that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.” And, fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

Listen in and remember to pray for your children and grandchildren!

I know we’ve heard Josh Groban’s You Raise Me Up before with these videos, but here he is with a group of beautiful little children from Africa. Enjoy the faces of these children!
