Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.
My parents are going through some health issues of concern this year. My dad just had surgery and my mom is scheduled for surgery this month. Since I’m working at the most flexible job I thought I’d go to Wisconsin to help my parents. They are convinced they don’t need help. I just got an e-mail, don’t you love technology, from my mother which gives me a directive to stay put. They are fine. The only thing missing from the message is a, “That is all.”
I think not.
I think not, even though I’m raised to follow rules, commandments, especially my parents. My respect for them and their life accomplishments grows yearly. But I think, my siblings think, it’s a good idea to be there. So after a careful couple of days thinking and praying about the decision, I returned the e-mail and said thanks but no thanks, I’ll be there.
What do you think about being an adult child and following parents directions?
