    Role Models

    Michael Z., Idaho, USA

    Trying my best to honor and obey my parents has blessed my life tremendously. I consistently make it home before my curfew, I take out the trash every week, and I do any chores I’m asked to do. I also honor them by asking for advice, trusting their judgment, and telling them that I love them whenever I get the chance. The result has been a sweet, trusting bond between us. They give me privileges that a lot of my friends don’t have because they know my decisions will be good ones. My parents have become not only my best friends but also great role models. I know that we have been commanded to honor and obey our parents for a wise purpose, and I have definitely reaped the benefits of living this commandment.
