Obedient children are not merely a nicety; they are a necessity. Children who disobey their parents contribute to chaos in the home and, eventually, chaos in society. This is why the Scriptures make explicit the requirement for children to obey their parents. Children who learn to obey their parents, and parents who insist on obedience as a way of growing in the faith, will mark the Christian community with life and human flourishing.
- Ephesians 6:1 - 4
