O.W. Prince Ministries Thanks Everyone Who Participated Today.
Congratulations Sister Carolyn White of Carrollton, Virginia. You are The Bible Scholar Champion for Wednesday, May 1, 2013.
Thank you Sister White for helping to make the Bible Scholars Group a fun, loving and caring place of learning and sharing. You have allowed your Light to Shine Brightly Today. Your answer is correct. You have demonstrated superb biblical scholarship.
Does the Bible designate a specific day of the year to honor our mothers and fathers? Yes or No? If yes, please give scripture reference where this practice may be found.
The answer for today’s Bible Challenge Question is: “No.”
These holidays are not religious in nature. They were instituted by man as special days set aside for the recognition of parents. However, God does command us to honor and respect our parents. This is the Fifth Commandment, given to us in Exodus 20:12 and Deuteronomy 5:16. This is reiterated by the apostle Paul, in Ephesians 6:1-3: “Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honor your father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; that it may be well with you, and you may live long on the earth.”
However, honoring our parents is not a religious holy day.
No specific day to honor parents has ever been found in the Bible. Any set date to do so is a tradition of mankind.
God commands us to honor our parents everyday – not just one day. And it is all the more important in these last and evil days that we honor our parents daily.
