Proverbs 30:17 The eye that mocks a father and scorns to obey a mother will be picked out by the ravens of the valley and eaten by the vultures.
What is your attitude to your parents? Are you disappointed that they have not provided for you and that you now need to work far away from home? Do you think you are cleverer than them and disdain them? A strong stand for parental reverence is lost today, How bad is a teenager rolling his eyes at parents? God sent His answer by the pen of Agur the prophet. Birds of prey will rip out the eyeballs of such terrible children and eat them! God will make them a public spectacle with horrific judgment for this wicked crime against father or mother. How much more the disrespect commonly allowed today! The disrespect of authority at all levels and in all spheres is confusing and troubling. You must choose – God’s inspired Bible is wrong, or His decreed statutes are right. Success or failure in life depends on you humbling yourself before God’s word and learning wisdom, no matter what the world thinks or says (Pr 1:20-33; 13:13; 15:32). It does not mean not following Christ and His ways, rather than following the ways of unbelieving parents. In knowing Christ we should pray that they will become believers. We can respect them in caring, loving them and providing for their needs if we can.
