Sunday Morning Series - Foundations for a Happy Home: Children's Responsibility (Ephesians 6:1-3)
Paul begins saying, “Children obey your parents in the Lord for this is right.”
The word “obey” is a derivative of the Greek word for hear. It is used in this verse to instruct the child to do what he is told. Second, Paul declares that children are to obey their parents “in the Lord, for this is right.” Paul makes a similar statement in Colossians 3:20: “Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.” Children who have been brought up in “the discipline and instruction of the Lord” (Eph. 6:4) surely know what pleases God.
Also, Paul instructs, “Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with a promise” (Eph. 6:2).
Paul then shows why it is important for children to obey and honor: “that it may be well with you, and you may live long on the earth” (6:3).
