Sermon Portion Yitro 2016


I want to talk to you this morning about the Fifth Commandment- Honor Your Father and Your Mother.

It’s a very serious, and, as we will see, somewhat involved Commandment.


The first question I think we need to struggle with is:

Are we obligated to honor our parents if they don’t deserve it?

What if they weren’t wonderful parents?

What if they were selfish narcissistic?

What if they verbally or mentally or maybe even physically abused us?
