Bible Text: Ephesians 6:1-4 |

  • Children, obey
    • Observations
      • This is the child's job
      • Because it is right
      • It is the parent's job to make sure of this
      • Obligation is also to others whom the parent chooses
    • Questions
      • Children, do you obey because it's right, or because you want to stay out of trouble?
      • Parents, do your children obey?
  • Honour thy father and mother
    • Observations
      • Not specific to children
      • This comes with a promise
  • Provoke not to wrath (anger), bring up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord
    • Observations
      • Provoking can include inconsistency, unfairness, cruel, lack of instruction
      • Proper instruction necessary
    • Traps
      • Making excuses for children not obeying
      • Making it needlessly hard for them to obey
