Re:Verse passage – Exodus 20:12 (day seven)
“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you.
When discussing true discipleship Jesus said, “If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.” (Luke 14:26 & Mt 10:37)
and on His own family He said, “A crowd was sitting around Him, and they said to Him, “Behold, Your mother and Your brothers are outside looking for You.” Answering them, He said, “Who are My mother and My brothers?” Looking about at those who were sitting around Him, He said, “Behold My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the will of God, he is My brother and sister and mother.” (Mark 3:32-35)
Family comes with a footnote. Your family IS eternally important, but they never come before God nor come before the 1st or 2nd commandment.
