Today we give God thanks for creating us (Genesis 1:27). God created the first man and woman; “And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living” (Genesis 3:20).
Let us also be reminded on this day one of the ten commandments God gave to the people of Israel and as a guide to us all was “Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee” (Deuteronomy 5:16).
“Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old” (Proverbs 23:22).
“Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness” (Proverbs 20:20).
