1Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 2Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) 3That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
It's been said that there can be two interpretations of this promise.
One, that God will reward you for honoring your parents (and that attitude will carry into other life lengthening behavior).
The other, as Bill Cosby quoted his mom:
"I brought you into this world, and I can take you out!"
My mom was not always honorable.
I honor her for the times she was, and regret the times I did not.
In her latter years she became a follower of Jesus.
I'm glad I will see her again.
