Children, obey your parents because you belong to the Lord, for this is the right thing to do.
Christmas is meaningful. Christmas is fun. But, Christmas can also resurface emotional wounds or spur conflict in the family and extended families. Our heavenly Father encourages us to obey and love our earthly father and mother. Since only God knows how many more Christmases you have, could it be time to wipe away the emotional marks and give grace like God has given to you?
