The same way our children are blessed when they obey us, it will be well with us if we honor and obey our Heavenly Father.
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.” 
(Eph. 6:1-3 NKJV)
Honor includes obedience. One of the greatest ways that we show honor is to obey. As adults we often expect that our children obey and honor us, but when it comes to God we seem to think that we have a choice.

Somewhere when we come into adulthood we think that we now have everything that it takes to make all of our own decisions. Consider for a moment, however, that we call God our, “Father”.  If that is true we should be walking in honor and obedience the same way we expect our children to.

When we obey God it shows Him honor. Remember that you never get too old to obey, and always honor God with your obedience to Him and His word. The same way our children are blessed when they obey us, it will be well with us if we honor and obey our Heavenly Father.
