If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Honor

Today is Day 19 of the 31 Day Writing Challenge with a prompt from Five Minute Friday. The prompt for today is "Honor."

I looked up honor in the dictionary and it means to esteem or to respect, also to show honesty, fairness or integrity in one's beliefs.

The Bible says in Ephesian 6:2-3, "“Honor your father and mother.” This is the first commandment with a promise: If you honor your father and mother, “things will go well for you, and you will have a long life on the earth.” 

According to this verse, if we honor our parents, then we will have a long life.  I love this promise and while I haven't been a perfect daughter, I feel for the most part I have honored and respected my parents.  But I have been blessed, my parents were worth honoring.  They trained me as a child to love God and to believe in Jesus Christ.  As an adult, they have always treated me with respect.

I hope I have done even half as well with my girls.
