Lord's Day 39

 

104 Q.    What is God's will for us in the fifth commandment?

 

       A.    That I honour, love, and be loyal to

my father and mother

and all those in authority over me;

that I obey and submit to them, as is proper,

     when they correct and punish me;1

and also that I be patient with their failings--2

for through them God chooses to rule us.3
