Nudge: Why Does God Encourage Children to be in Subjection to their Parents?

It’s not really open for debate – from the 10 Commandments of Moses’s Law, to the 6th Chapter of Ephesians, to the scathing rebuke of the scribes and Pharisees concerning the personal care (or the lack thereof) for their parents and ultimately God in Mark 7, God says children must take note of their parents when it comes to writing the chapters of their life story.

So here’s the nudge: Why is this such an important issue to God, and what about honoring parents who do not care for God or for His way of life?

I’d love to hear your answers, especially to the later part since so many young people (including Christians) deal with this family situation in our culture today.
