The Honor System
Everyone has biological parents and we have all been given the command to honor them, whether or not they deserve it. This is the command that comes with the promise that we will live long with we honor our parents. Often times parents make mistakes, some small ones, some huge ones. Nevertheless, the command still stands, and to not honor them sets an example for your kids to follow to not honor you and it goes down from generation to generation. Even Jesus honored the Father while He was here on earth, and so in the same way we are to honor our parents, even if it is simply for the fact that they gave us life.
