Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing to the Lord. (Colossians 3:20)
Parents who are teaching their children to be obedient are laying a good foundation for them to also obey God. By obeying their parents, children learn to show respect, to be responsible and to be prompt in fulfilling their duty. “A child left to himself brings shame to his mother”, but a child who receives correction “will give you rest” (Prov. 29:15, 17). God is pleased when children obey their parents. He is also pleased when parents do the difficult but necessary work of training their children to obey father and mother — and God.
