“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.” – Exodus 20:12
Every era has its quirks that are made fun of. Today for Spirit Week we are having fun with the wild, bright colors and styles of the 1980s! Some fun and humor about prior decades can be great, but sometimes it is easy to look at the older generations and berate them for not understanding us. Differences in opinions, upbringing, and even the technologies that we grew up with can cause frustration between parents and children.
As we encounter differences between ourselves, our parents, and even perhaps our grandparents, we must keep in mind Exodus 20:12. Are we honoring our parents and older relatives in thought and in deed? While we may not always see eye to eye on everything, let us always treat those who came before us with love and respect—this is part of our calling as followers of Christ.
