Proverbs 28:24 (KJV)
Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer.
Exodus 20:12 (KJV)
Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
It’s the first commandment with promise and, according to the Bible quite the significant one.
The concept being taught here is that of taking parents for granted. That can be done in a number of ways:
- Robbing them of attention
- Robbing them of honor
- Robbing them of valuables
- Robbing them of dignity
- Robbing them by assuming a loan from them does not have to be paid back
The family is the backbone of society. Without the family, neither governments nor churches (the three institutions created by God) can long prosper. To rob our parents is to teach our children to do the same, eventually teaching their children and children’s children, until the fabric of society is destroyed.
To rob our father and mother is to join with those who will eventually destroy our society.
