Daily Success (the Bill Gothard way)
As I've said before, I subscribed to Bill Gothard's Daily Success emails so you don't have to. Every once in a while a gem comes along that I feel is worth sharing. Like Command 26: Honor Your Parents. Included in the ten suggestions for honoring one's parents is this:
Thank them with gifts of appreciation. In this passage, the Greek word translated as honor, timao, means “to attach a value to something.” We honor the government by paying taxes. We honor the Lord by giving tithes and offerings. It is therefore appropriate to honor parents by giving them meaningful and valued gifts.
Consider it a public service announcement with April 15 coming up. Don't forget to honor the government!
