But if a widow has children or grandchildren, they must first learn to practice their religion in regard to their own family and to make some return to their parents; for this is acceptable in the sight of God.
When a woman is in labor she has sorrow, because her hour has come; but as soon as she gives birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a child has been born into the world.

1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
2 »Honor your father and mother« (which is the first commandment with a promise),
3 »that it may be well with you and that you may live long on the earth.«

It is for discipline that you endure. God is treating you as sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline?
If you are left without discipline, in which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons.
If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God! And so we are! The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
Fathers, do not provoke your children, or they will become discouraged.
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.
