“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land…” – Exodus 20:12
Many centuries before when the lands were in the hands of nobles, in the midst particular people of Japanese province there was a horrifying practice prevailed among them. That is 70 years reached parents should be taken and lifted carried to the top of the mountain. There they will die without food and water in that place.
A middle-aged Japanese was taking his mother carrying to the climax of the mountain. His mother broke the sticks and dropped on the way to the mountain top. When the man asked the reason, the mother said, “See, when you return you must not forget the way.” The mother’s love touched the heart of the son (man). He decided that he would not leave his mother so and he brought back his mother home. Selfless mother’s love and son’s affection had changed the ancient habit of Japanese is now told in Japan.
There is nothing to equal the sacrificial love of the mother. For the sake of children forgetting the safety and worries with more concern committing herself is the mother. But today there are mothers who kill their children for pleasure (lascivious life). There are children who send their begotten nourished beloved parents to the old age home as orphans.
In the above said incident we learn two things from this. One, to prolong your life, you must honor your father and mother reminding of the scripture in heart let us honor aged parents heart fully. The next one, our worldly mother may too some time forsake the children. But love of God, is never changing and never forgetting love!
Dear ones! You filled in the love of God, treat your aged unable parents with love and care. Show your love to them, may the grace of God be with you!
