Quotes to Consider:
Rev. Herman Hoeksema on the fifth commandment: "... the
commandment enjoins the children and all those that stand in a position
of obedience in relation to others, that they shall honour them.
Children must honour their father and their mother: not only their
father, but also their mother. In relation to their children both of
them stand in a position of authority. And that the children are
enjoined to honour their father and their mother implies that they
respect them in their position for God’s sake and motivated by the love
of God, that therefore they submit themselves to their instruction and
correction, and that they obey their precepts. This applies, according
to all Scripture, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the evil
and froward. There is only one limitation to this position of obedience,
and that is that according to Scripture we must honour and obey God
rather than men ... Obedience, therefore, must be practised and
inculcated, first of all, in the home. And from the home this spiritual
virtue must be extended in its manifestation to all other departments of
life, in the school, in society, in the church, and in the state" (Triple
Knowledge, vol. 3, pp. 290-291).
