Fear of God Devotional: The Blessing of Obedient Children

What are the blessings that come from obedience children?

Jeff Pollard explains in this video that children are to obey their fathers and mothers. When they do, we see God’s blessing. Proverbs 23:24 (NKJV) says that, “The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice, and he who begets a wise child will delight in him.”

Conversely, if children disobey their parents, they are making an incredible mistake and are sinning against God. Those who disobey the commandments of God will miss out on the joy of honoring and obeying those that God has placed in authority over them.  

Ephesians 6:1-3 (NKJV) – “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. ‘Honor your father and mother,’ which is the first commandment with promise: ‘that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.’”
