Main Idea
One reason God gives us parents is so we can develop a healthy view of authority. It’s our choice how we choose to honor them with our actions and attitude.

Starter
If you have kids, how’s parenting going right now during the virus? If you don’t have kids, grab a bucket of popcorn or your favorite drink and sit back and enjoy.

Read
Ephesians 6:1, Exodus 20:12 and Deuteronomy 5:16

Discuss
Parenting isn’t easy. Many of us have learned or will learn that at some point. No matter how your specific story was growing up, do your best to answer the following questions:

  1. Growing up, what’s an area where your parents were right and you were wrong?

  2. How did your parents shape how you view authority? How about how you view God?

  3. How have you honored them as an adult? Or not? Or want to start?

Apply
Pastor Mike talked about taking time to connect with our parents. If you are able to connect with your parent(s) this week – how can you show you appreciate them?

Alternatively, what’s one way you can show your child(ren) this week you really care about them?
