DEVOTIONAL
“Honor your father and your mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise—“that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.” (The Small Catechism: Table of Duties – To Children)
In the Name + of Jesus. Amen. Vocation bears a promise. It’s law, but the law still bears a promise. Not just do this get that. It’s simpler: God wants this done. The promise behind the Table of Duties is that your God wills these things to be done. If He has to use you, so be it. God wills children to be faithful, so He gives them parents to raise them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. God wills children to have shelter and safety, so He gives them parents to care for them.
The worst thing we do is kick Him out at this point. Okay, God. You did your part, now it’s my turn. If I do it right, my kids won’t leave the faith. If I behave well enough, I’ll get a longer life. As if God hands us the ball and goes back up to heaven to see how it turns out. What if the God who worked to give you the gift of family wasn’t content to be apart from it?
Vocation bears a promise because you can see the means God wishes to use as well as the end He aims for. He’ll be a part of it, too. Parents, if your kids have strayed, remember that God is the Good Shepherd who seeks His sheep. Remember that the Word you taught them is His living and active Word. He is at work through it, even now. Kids, if your parents are sinners, realize that’s how the world works since Adam and Eve broke it. None of us does this perfectly. God calls us to honor our parents because He is the one working behind and through them to care for us.
Honor has to be earned, but God’s gift is that He will work inside of vocation, so the honor is earned by Him, not us. Honor your father and mother, not because they’re without sin, but because the God who bore their sin on the cross promises to grab hold of them and take care of you. In the Name + of Jesus. Amen. -Rev. Harrison Goodman
Hear us, dear Father, when we pray For needed help from day to day That as Your children we may live, Whom You baptized and so received. (Lord, Help Us Ever to Retain, LSB 865:3)
