A son honors his father, and a slave his master. “If I am a father, where is the honor due me? If I am a master, where is the respect due me?” says the Lord Almighty. (Mal 4:6)
What do we respect and honor each day? Have we placed or replaced our obedience in ourselves or other matters of this world? Whatever we submit to, we obey and it becomes the “Father” of our lives.
