Pais e Filhos
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
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.«
11 What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent?
12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?
13 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!«
If any one does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his own family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
Fathers, do not provoke your children, or they will become discouraged.
Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.
It is for discipline that you endure. God is treating you as sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline?
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.
