Consider well the relationship you sustain with your parents. There is a natural relationship between you and them, in as much as they are the instruments of your very existence— a circumstance which of itself seems to invest them, with an almost absolute AUTHORITY OVER YOU! The commonness, the universality of the tie, takes off the mind from contemplating its closeness, its tenderness, its sanctity. You are literally parts of your parents, and cannot dwell for a moment upon your origin, without being struck, one would think, with the amazing and solemn weight of obligation that rests upon you towards a father and a mother.
“My son, obey your father’s commands, and don’t neglect your mother’s teaching. Keep their words always in your heart. Tie them around your neck. Wherever you walk, their counsel can lead you. When you sleep, they will protect you. When you wake up in the morning, they will advise you.” Proverbs 6:20-22
YOU CAN NEVER BE ABOVE THEM at any damn point of your entire life my friend! (MARK THIS WELL)
You shall always stay indebted to them,not they!!!!!!
You have no right to question or demand clarifications from them on any situation because folk, you have not been given this right from the Almighty!
The mother has kept you in her womb and nourished you,not you’ve done that!
The father has ruined his body working all day and night,under the scorching sun,just to keep you in good health; it wasn’t you who did that!
So who are they to give you clarifications?
Who are you to take them and their love for granted?
Weigh well the significance of the word PARENT; think how much is employed in it towards its appropriate object, how many offices it contains in itself—guardian, ruler, teacher, guide, benefactor, provider—WHAT THEN MUST BE THE OBLIGATIONS OF A CHILD?
“The father of a righteous man has great joy; he who has a wise son delights in him. May your father and mother be glad; may she who gave you birth rejoice!” Proverbs 23:24-25
LOVE YOUR PARENTS & Just LOVE YOUR PARENTS!❤❤
