10 Things to Say to Your Parents

What do you think of when you think about your parents? Some of us immediately think of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. This is because those are the two days out of the year that we really focus on our parents and all they have done for us.

It’s easy to take them for granted sometimes. We all get busy and have families and responsibilities we are committed to. Still, it is important to let our parents know how much we love them, care for them, and still value their input in our lives. As we all know, they won’t be here forever.

If you’re not sure where to start in what to say to your parents, here are some suggestions to get you started.

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother-which is the first commandment with a promise- “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy a long life on earth.” Ephesians 6 (NLT)
