Under Gods Command

1 Timothy 5:1-2 Do not rebuke an older man harshly but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity. 

Men in the ministry can avoid improper attitudes toward women by treating them as family members. If men see women as fellow members in God’s family, they will protect them and help them grow spiritually.

People often find it easy to dismiss the opinions of the elderly and avoid taking time to visit with them.  But the fact that God commanded the Israelites to honor the elderly shows how seriously we should take the responsibility of respecting those older than we.  Their wisdom gained from experience can save us from many pitfalls.

Lets Bring it Home: Ho do you show respect and honor to your elders?
