We can honour others because God meets our deepest needs for love and acceptance.

Ephesians Day 14 Quote

Knowing that God is the perfect Heavenly Father who meets our deepest needs for love and acceptance gave me the assurance that He desires only what is good for me, and so I can obey what He asks of me, including submitting to my imperfect earthly father.

Godly submission is not conditioned on earthly performance and reciprocity (i.e., love and obey only if the person is deserving). Rather, it’s out of a God-given reverence that draws from the sacrificial and eternal love that God has demonstrated for us.
