Episode 18: As an adult, how do I honor my parents who expect me to heed their authority the way I did when I was a child? (Pt. 3)

Episode highlights:

  • As adults, we can honor our parents by speaking to them respectfully, thanking them for all they’ve done, taking care of them physically, and inviting them into our lives.
  • When there appears to be a disagree about whether or not honoring equals obeying, it’s best to have an open, straightforward conversation about it.
  • If our parents still do not agree that we are required by Scripture to honor them while making our own decisions, we must continue to honor them, including by considering their counsel, even if unsolicited.
  • We need to avoid the mistake of thinking that our parents must agree with us in order to have a relationship with us.
