Matthew 23:9. My Father 8 Oct 2023

Mat 23:9 You must call no one on earth your father,
since you have only one Father,
and he is in heaven.

Again Jesus speaks to the crowds and disciples. What about the 'honor your parents?' Jesus does not cancel commandments. A task of our parents is to guides us into the safe fatherhood of God.
Making Eph 6:4 "And parents, never drive your children to resentment but bring them up with correction and advice inspired by the Lord." an understatement.


Jesus, may your father be my Father.
