“Protecting Our Parents”

Key Verse

 “And David went thence to Mizpeh of Moab: and he said unto the king of Moab, Let my father and my mother, I pray thee, come forth, and be with you, till I know what God will do for me” (1 Samuel 22:3).

Text — 1 Samuel 22:1-5


David escaped from King Saul Kish, who wanted him dead. However, about four hundred people, including his relatives, decided to follow him and he became their captain. His mother, who nursed him from childhood and his father who brought him up as a shepherd boy and eventually sent for him to be anointed by Samuel as king, were among these “refugees.” David hated to see his parents suffer and endanger their own lives with him. He had to make a special arrangement with the king of Moab to care for them until conditions improved. That was a wise action by a godly son.

My friend, now or in the future, you may have to protect your parents against loneliness, illness, financial or material hardship, and physical insecurity. According to Nelson Mandela, “Few things make the life of a parent more rewarding and sweet as successful children.”A successful godly child, like David, would care for and protect his parents. Are you godly and diligent? If yes, then help to make your parents happy and fulfilled. Today is Global Day of Parents. Pray for them.


Make your parents safe


The problem of your parents is your problem.

Prayer for today

Help me Lord to contribute to my parents’ welfare.
