First, We Should Obey Our Parents Because the _________ Says So!
I don’t know about you, but if the Bible says obeying your parents pleases God, then that’s what I want to do. This first reason is the only one I need.
Colossians 3:20 Obey your parents for this pleases the Lord.
We’re done, right? No. There’s another reason.
