KJV Bible

Bible (Photo credit: knowhimonline)

Exodus 20:12 is another reading in the bible that deals with Fatherhood.

To me Exodus 20:12 talks about how children should anyways honor their father and mother.  This is also part of the Ten Commandments as well.

This talks to us fathers in a way we need to teach our children to honor us as we honor our own father and mother.  Children learn by example that we teach them.  

So make sure you are doing what you are teaching.

Here are two different bible translations of Exodus 20:12

Exodus 20:12

New International Version (NIV)

12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

 

Exodus 20:12

New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

12 Honor your father and your mother, so that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.
