Advice by Pastor Andy Fernandez
"Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the LORD your God is giving you."
For many, this may seem un applicable because you have suffered the loss of your loved one, or perhaps it's hard to honor your parents because of their lack of positive influence or abuse. Yet God has placed this law in our hearts for your benefit. It is the only law that is accompanied by a promise. Submitting and honoring your earthly authority reflects your character and maturity in Christ.
Honor, esteem, and hold of high value those who also guard your life and soul (your pastor, your spiritual mother, your earthly parents).
