God has an established role and responsibilities for children in the family. The Bible teaches that children should honor their parents. But what is the honorable thing for a child to do? In this message, Dr. Merritt dives into God's Word to explore how the obedience of a child both honors parents and pleases God.
"Obedience in the short run will pay off later in the long run, not just for your parents, but for you. Do you know why? Because, one day you are going to have children. You are going to teach them the very same things that your parents tried to teach you." --Dr. Merritt
