Children, Honor Your Parents!


There’s many parents who try their best t

o raise their kids.

Many of their hearts cry because

of how their children live.


Many tried to teach their children

God’s holy ways.

What was taught, seems to be lost…  I

n a matter of days.


Many of them pray for their children’s lives.

Often their children choose to live a life of lies.


Scripture says to honor our parents,

that our days may be long.

But any kind of honor to them,

some feel doesn’t belong!


The advice and warnings from parents

are often ignored.

Many of their children say they’re

“old fashioned and bored.”


There’s a message for the young

 people that needs to be clear!

You need to honor your parents.

 One day they won’t be here!


God gave us the parents we have,

whether we accept this or not.

We need to think about the things

 that our parents taught!


May we seek to live lives

that’ll bring honor and grace.

In our hearts, may we keep our parents

 in a “special place!”


May we share from our hearts,

the love our lord has given!

May we share his love while

 our parents are still livin’!


The love we can give our parents

 is a treasure untold!

The gift of having parents

is more precious than gold!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
