Honoring Parents

Exodus 20:12


Share a funny time in your life when you got in trouble with your parents.
Or… In what ways are you more like your parents now that you are an adult?


Read Exodus 20:12 & Ephesians 6:1

According to the text, why is it so important to obey our parents as we grow up?
In Ephesians 6:1 what do you think is the difference between “obeying” your parents and “honoring” them?
How do we honor our parents?
As our heavenly father, how do we honor God?

Read Proverbs 22:6
Dudley mentioned in his sermon that the primary role of the parent is to teach their child the things of God.

What are the implications of this verse?
Share a good thing and a “not so good thing” you learned from your parents?
How has your up bring impacted your current life?


Read Psalm 139:1-18
Reflect on your life growing up. Go to God in prayer (forgiving your parents were they may need forgiveness, praying for them were they need prayer) ask God how you may better honor your earthly parents… how you may better honor Him.


Have you scheduled your community outreach project? One suggestion is for the group to visit and volunteer at an elderly care center.
