Take Care Of Your Parents

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Proverbs 30:17

The eye that mocks a father, that scorns an aged mother, will be pecked out by the ravens of the valley, will be eaten by the vultures.

O-bservation:

For this wise man, there was nothing more disrespectful and hideous than children who refused to care for their aged parents. In fact, misery appears to await them.

A-pplication:

WOW! You know I can’t really count through the years how many times I’ve read this verse before, but this AM it really hit me. I’m not that good of a guy, but I’ve got to say that disrespecting my parents was never in my wheelhouse of experience. I adored my father and I ADORE and LOVE my dear mother. Of course, they were the kind of parents that were easy to love. And I’m sure I’m blessed in that way. I fear many folks have been brought up in some brutal parental surroundings. Yet we’re still not given a green light from Scripture to disrespect our parents. Whatever it takes, do your absolute best to “Take Care Of Your Parents.”

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,

How very thankful I am for the most wonderful parents a child could ever have. I’m praying for my friend today who reads this post, that You will help them as well to “Take Care Of Their Parents.” Amen
