If any widow has children or grandchildren, let them learn first to act piously toward their own family and to repay what they owe to their parents and grandparents. For this is pleasing in the sight of God.
A woman when she is bringing forth has grief because her hour has come. But when she has borne the child, she no longer remembers her anguish for the joy that a human being has been born into the world.
And Jesus grew in wisdom and in height and in favor with God and with men.
1 CHILDREN, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
2 "Honor your father and your mother." This is the first commandment with a promise,
3 "That it may go well with you and you may be long-lived in the land."
When Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them; for of such is the kingdom of God.
It is for discipline that you are enduring. God is laying it upon you as upon sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline?
But if you are without discipline, in which all share, then you are bastards and not sons.
If you, though evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him.
SEE what love the Father has bestowed on us that we should be called children of God. And so we are. The reason why tho world does not know us is that it did not know him.
Fathers, do not irritate your children, for they may lose heart.
And you, fathers, do not irritate your children, but bring them up in the education and admonition of the Lord.
Children, obey your parents in everything, for this is pleasing in the Lord.
