"Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee."
We really have to honor our parents because we owe our literal body to them. But in the spiritual knowledge our parent is not the parent we used to know when we are child, because any man cannot gave any additional life span to man, like the commandment said, "...that thy days may be long upon the land...". Then who is this parent that can make you live long?
The answer was written at the book of Hebrew saying,
"Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?"(Hebrews 12:9)
The parent we must obey and reverence the most was God, He is the Father of the spirits, who can gave us long life to live if we follow His way and lecture.
All father in earth cannot obey this doctrine, because this commandment of our Lord are to those who can accept the Kingdom of God.
"And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. "(Matthew 23:9)
God's Name Was Father From Everlasting
"Doubtless thou art our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: thou, O LORD, art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting."(Isaiah 63:16)
