The Importance of Parents

No parent is perfect, nevertheless, the Law of Moses said this about someone who cursed his parents, “For everyone who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. He has cursed his father or his mother. His blood shall be upon him” (Leviticus 20:9).
While a parent would not seek the death penalty immediately for a child, yet, this shows the severity of cursing parents that such a penalty in time could have been used. This would obviously follow other actions that had failed, and it would apply to an adult child.
Still, it shows that God placed a high value on parents, and we should never speak against God’s system, even if our parents have not been what they should have been.
Let us learn to hold our tongues.
