A Practical Application of the Fifth Commandment for Young People
This book of evaluation questions and Scripture explores the meaning and practical application of the Fifth Commandment, "Honor thy father and thy mother; that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee" (Exodus 20:12). This is a simple command, but it encompasses more than we often realize! It takes discipline and training for children to learn to honor and obey their parents as God requires.
For This Is Right will give direction to this training process by keeping you and your children grounded in God's Word. In the same format as As Unto the Lord and A Checklist for Parents, For This Is Right includes:
A short set of summary questions for daily review. These are designed to help children prayerfully examine their attitudes and actions with the goal of quickly pinpointing areas of sin for further thought, Bible study and repentance. A powerful tool for building a life-long commitment to honor and obedience!
An in-depth, expanded series of over 350 questions, each followed by Scripture which explains what God commands of children in relation to their parents. These are patterned after The Westminster Larger Catechism's teaching on the Fifth Commandment.
Suggested Bible studies and other projects.
Easily used for independent or group study, parent-child study, in discipline situations, and in counseling.
