What it means to honor your parents.

James MacDonald posted a great blog post yesterday about honoring your parents:

Thought this part was specifically important to remember:

Honoring means choosing to place great value upon our relationship with them . . . It involves taking the initiative to improve the relationship whatever its current condition. And it means recognizing what they have done right. You say, “They haven’t done a lot right.” They have done something right, even if it’s little more than giving you life (that’s big). So, express that recognition. Acknowledge the sacrifices that they have made for you. Honoring includes seeing them as Christ does, with compassion and mercy
