From the Heidelberg Catechism, for the Lord’s Day, September 29

The Fifth Commandment

“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you.”

104. What does God require in the fifth Commandment?
That I show all honor, love, and faithfulness to my father and mother, and to all in authority over me, submit myself with due obedience to all their good instruction and correction, and also bear patiently with their infirmities, since it is God’s will to govern us by their hand.
