Hey, children! I have another Bible coloring page for you today. The verse on it says “Honour thy father….”
A commandment and a promise!
Did you know that “Honour thy father” is part of the Ten Commandments? The whole verse says, “Honour thy father and thy mother that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.”
It’s a commandment and a promise! How about that?
God wants us to be respectful and kind to the people that are older than us. That especially means our parents.
Even if you do not have your father with you for some reason, you probably have someone who takes care of you and helps you to make good decisions. Who can you think of? God wants to help you to honour that person.
“Honour thy father.” It’s what God wants you to do–and He will help you do it.
You may print out the Bible coloring page at the top of this post. When you have it all colored in, you may share it with your father, if you would like to. You could even write a special message at the bottom, like “I love you, Dad!”
Honour your father
Can you think of some ways to honour your father?
How about giving him a hug, like the children in our Bible coloring page?
Or, how about speaking kindly to him?
Or doing the things he asks you to do–right away?
Or saying nice things about him when you talk to other people?
What else can you think of?
Ask God right now to help you honour your father today! 🙂
