Honor your Father and Mother
This is the fourth commandment. You can find it in Deuteronomy 5:16. This is one of those commandments that is straight forward. Obviously if your parents tell you to jump off a cliff that isn't something you should do, but within reason, honor your father and mother. When parents tell you to make your bed for example they are teaching you discipline. When God designed male and female He instructed us to replenish the earth. Due to this, God gave parents the ability to take care of their children and to raise them with the fear of the Lord and to be ambassadors or Christ.
