Fathers Must be Honored
Then He went out from there and came to His own country, and His disciples
followed Him. And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the
synagogue. And many hearing Him were astonished, saying, “Where did this
Man get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that
such mighty works are performed by His hands! Is this not the carpenter,
the Son of Mary, and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are
not His sisters here with us?” So they were offended at Him. But Jesus
said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country,
among his own relatives, and in his own house.” Now He could do no mighty
work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed
them. And He marveled because of their unbelief. Then He went about the
villages in a circuit, teaching
Honor is high respect; esteem.
This is really important A prophet has honor except in his own country, among his own relatives and in his own house.”
Jesus (the Son of God) could do no mighty work there, because they were not honoring him. He could not do mighty
work…. They had no faith. Jesus could not do mighty work because he was not honored.
He could do mighty works everywhere but
since they would not honor him he could not do mighty works….
Among his own relatives and in his own house….
Dishonor hindered Jesus Let me tell you if dishonor hindered Jesus
do you think a man a father with no honor or faith in him can do mighty works in his own home He cannot!
A father cannot do mighty work if he is not honored it is not possible….
“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the
land which the Lord your God is giving you.
