What does the fifth commandment require of children?


"Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth
thee.". Ex. 20: 12.
NOTE - While this precept refers directly to our earthly parents, it also includes God, our Father
in heaven; for in honoring them we honor Him. To the child too young to know God, the earthly parent
takes the place of God. Learning to honor, respect, and obey his earthly parents is the child's first and most
important lesson in learning to honor, respect, and obey God, his heavenly Parent. Benjamin Franklin well
said: "Let a child's first lesson be obedience, and the second may be what thou wilt."
