Ephesians 6:2 HONOUR THY FATHER and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
Sometimes the greatest gifts are not just given during the Christmas season. You can make an effort to give them all year long. There are many ways to honor our parents. Of course we know that we are to treat them with respect, we are to be attentive to them but even when they are not around we should conduct ourselves in a way as not to bring reproach upon them.
I am sure that many of you who are reading these devotionals have parents that are already gone on to be with the Lord. You can still honor them by walking in the Spirit and following Jesus daily.
Sometimes my heart breaks for so many parents who seldom ever see or hear from their children. There are many in retirement homes who seldom get a visit. Maybe it would be a great gift we could give all year if we made a decision not only to honor our own parents but all those that are elderly.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know. Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus. I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
