honor your parents

Exodus 21


And he that curseth his father,
or his mother,
shall surely be put to death.
This part of the old law was kind of scary. Basically, if you curse your mom or dad, the law was to put you to death.

Hopefully we don't run around cursing people, anyway. Obviously, we don't hand out death sentences for things like that any more.

This should still make us think about how we do talk to our parents. Next time you're tempted to say something to your parents that doesn't honor them, remember this old law.
