A Biblical Command We Never Outgrow: “Honor Your Father and Mother”
Can we outgrow God’s commands? Here is some great insight on honoring our parents.
“Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you” (Exodus 20:12).

Belief in Him saves us, not following rules.So, what then, is the purpose of commands such as “honor your father and mother,” in our New Testament lives?
