The Tragedy of Dishonouring Your Parental Figureheads


Many times children are tempted to dishonor their parents, be it on genuine or perceived reasons.

They think they have seen it now, and they can chastise and ridicule their parents publicly or privately. It is even more tempting when a child seems to have “achieved” better results of life than their parents. This is an extremely dangerous charade that must stop forthwith. Whatever level of your life you can be in, you can never stand tall to the same level with your parents and begin to chastise them. That is unacceptable both from a moral and spiritual point of view.

The following are some of the things never to do to your parental figureheads.
  1. Never take your parents to court regardless of the value of the property involved. If God wanted you to have that property, you would have been born with it.
  2. Never repossess what you once gave a parent.
  3. Never interrogate parents regarding what they did with the last money you gave them. You can find out wisely. But once you realise it may also raise issues. Just leave it at that.
  4. Never lecture parents regarding their apparent weaknesses. You have not outlived them; you have not lived long enough.
  5. A parent may take you to court, repossess what he gave you, interrogate you and even lecture you.
  6. Wise people can stand a parent’s spit on their faces. They know it is a blessing in disguise.
  7. You will never be rich enough to do a parent any favour. All you do for them is a priviledge of service. They birthed you but you can never birth them. You simply cannot pay them in any way.
  8. If you can buy life, then you can lecture fathers and mothers regarding the help you have given them.
  9. Parents are treasure on this land and sooner than you think, that treasure will be buried. Appreciate your parents while they are still alive with you here on earth.
