The apostle Paul addresses children in Ephesians 6:1-3, commanding them to obey their parents. This simple instruction is directly antithetical to the course of this world because the way of the world is rebellion. Today’s society is characterized by disobedience to parents which is worked by Satan, the original rebel to God. This text is also contrary to our sinful natures which constantly rebel under authority. How then are children able to obey? What is the calling of parents in regard this command? The text also mentions God’s fifth commandment to obey parents as the first commandment with promise. What is this promise and why is it so important? Click here to listen to Rev. David Overway examine this very relevant passage of scripture.
