If there’s one thing that the word of God always emphasizes is that everyone has a responsibility, and failing to do that responsibility has consequences. The family is a good starting point to learn about responsibilities, and each member has one.

Fathers were instructed to teach their children about God, discipline them, and avoid provoking them. In the Bible, the fathers provided for their families’ needs and protected them from danger. Mothers, on the other hand, were keepers of the home and were in charge with nurturing their children.

Of course, the children have responsibilities as well, and that is to obey their parents as they obey the Lord. They need to honor and respect their parents because it is a way to show their love for them.
