Parents are God’s stewards of His children here on earth. Do you love, respect and care for your parents as much as you love God? - Daily Bible Reflections July 24,2015


OLD SCHOOL
 
Honor your father and your mother. – Exodus 20:12
 
      “I’m 25, I don’t need guidance!” “If you want us to have a conversation, then mind your own business.”
       “Just because I do not go and greet lola, I am being disrespectful? You’re wrong!” “There you go again with your drama.”
       These are real life statements made by a son to his mother. It’s lamentable how brazen children of this generation have become in engaging their parents. They have a strong sense of entitlement and passion to assert their individuality. Parents like me are aghast and frown over such disrespectful attitude. Some parents, however, have already adopted a more liberal approach, conceding such behavior as part of today’s modern lifestyle, Western influence and generation gap.
       Perhaps I belong to the old school. I believe in having good manners and etiquette, respecting my elders and helping others when I can. But regardless of generation — be it X, Y or Z — God’s commandment on honoring one’s mother and father never goes out of style. It remains binding across generations, regardless of culture.

Reflection: Parents are God’s stewards of His children here on earth. Do you love, respect and care for your parents as much as you love God?
 
Lord, enlighten our children that they may value what their parents do for them.
 
St. Sharbel Makhlouf, pray for us.
