20. Fourth and fifth commandment
1. The fourth commandment
The fourth commandment is: Honour your father and your mother.
Our parents love us a lot, and we must give back their love with love, respect and obedience.
We love our parents when we give to them satisfaction and happiness. It would be disrespectful to despise them, insult them or offend them in some way, or to be ashamed because of them. We must obbey them with promptness and love. To experience these we must take Jesus - and how He loved and obbeyed his mother Mary and his father Joseph - as our model.
We must also respect those who are higher in age, dignity and judgement, as our grandparents, teachers and other elder people are.
On the other hand, parents must love, sustain and educate their sons in a Christian way. A couple must love, help and be faithful to each other.
