Lord's Day 39 Heidelberg Catechism

Lord's Day 39

Scripture Readings: Ephesians 6:1-9; Romans 13:1-7

Question 104. What is God's will for us in the fifth commandment?
Answer. That I show honor, love, and loyalty to my father and mother and all those in authority over me; that I submit myself with proper obedience to all their good teaching and correction; and also that I be patient with their failings, for through them God chooses to rule us.

For study and reflection:
How do we honor our parents if they are not believers?
