We all too often see in our children actions that show them in a war with us and our authority. They seem to be dressed and ready for the combat while we are caught dragging our feet. When we have children we do not rush into that situation in fight mode.
But what are we to expect when we seem to forever to be provoking our kids just because its fun to see their reactions.
One good study of the Ten Commandments that there is a lot more to loving God and keeping his law than just expecting that children no matter what we do and say to them need to give us due honor.
Is it possible that after all we do to them they are giving us our due honor.
