Prayer Guide: June 23, 2019 – Exodus 20:12
Posted By: Nate Magloughlin - 6/19/2019 4:00:00 PM

The 5th Commandment – Honor your father and mother – is the leading commandment of the second table of commands. The first four commandments regulate our love to God. The last six describe our love for others. Loving others begins with honoring one’s father and mother because it is in the home where relationships begin. This Sunday, we will learn that honoring one’s father and mother doesn’t end when we turn 18 years old. This commandment endures and should be a guiding principle throughout life. Please join with your church family in praying that God will do a great work in the life of our church family.
