July 7, 2015 Honor your father and mother!

07 Jul

Daily Bible Reading: Job 34-35, Acts 15:1-21

familyHonor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you. Exodus 20:12 (NIV)

It wasn’t a small point when the Lord handed down the commandment to Moses. The family, as God designed by the Creator, was to be one man and one woman, blessed by God, partnering together for a lifetime, and from that union, children would be the outcome.

So I’m wondering…will those who claim a faith in Christ and not a belief in the infallible Word of God, need to “rewrite” the Scriptures? Will that mean a change from “Honor thy father and thy father” to “Honor thy mother and thy mother”?

Here’s another one:

joinedFor this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his man, and they will become one flesh. Genesis 2:24 (NIV)

It gets a little confusing for me.

Here are just a few more. I doubt I have all of them but I think you get the gist of it.

Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me. Psalm 27:10 (NIV)

May your father and mother be glad; may she who gave you birth rejoice! Proverbs 23:25 (NIV)

‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? Matthew 19:5 (NIV)

“Honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.'” Matthew 19:19 (NIV)

‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife. Mark 10:7 (NIV)

You know the commandments: ‘Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor your father and mother.'” Mark 10:19 (NIV)

“If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his two become onebrothers and sisters–yes, even his own life–he cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:26 (NIV)

“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” Ephesians 5:31 (NIV)

“Honor your father and mother”–which is the first commandment with a promise– Ephesians 6:2 (NIV)

I wonder if the NEW bible will be called the SCOTUS version of the Bible. Or maybe the Bible according to SCOTUS.

Open our eyes, Lord. Give us repentant hearts.

O Lord our God, forgive us for tampering with Your perfect Creation, first in the garden, and every day ever since. Forgive us for thinking we know better than You, or that we are offering something greater to Your Creation as if You didn’t have everything right from the beginning. Turn our hearts back to Your Truths. Give us repentant hearts that Your people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then You will hear from heaven and will forgive our sin and will heal our land. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
