Under Gods Command

1 Timothy 5:08 If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

Healthy homes remain the best possible training environment for children.  When it comes to caring for relatives and honoring parents, children take most of their cues by watching how Mom and Dad honor the grandparents.  If our children see the way we, as parents, care for our parents, they will understand the importance of such honor for us in the future.  Healthy, practical honor becomes a priceless gift that one generation gives to another.  Disrespect and lack of care provide harmful examples that will eventually turn on us.  The warning in the verse is ominous (Threatening) indeed.

Lets Bring it Home: How are we, or how did we treat our Parents? Did we, or have we set an examples for our kids to follow?  You seen the verse, worst than a unbeliever.
