“Honour Thy Father and Thy Mother”

Exodus 20:12

12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

Elder Bruce R. McConkie wrote:

“Children come into mortality with the inborn requirement, planted in their souls by that very Being who gave them birth as spirits, to honor their parents and to obey their counsel in righteousness.”

(Doctrinal New Testament Commentary, 3 vols. [1965–73], 2:521.)
