Sermon on the Ten Commandments (#5): “Honor Your Father and Mother”


Series Introduction: When I served as a youth pastor, I taught a series on the Ten Commandments. The applications were geared towards teenagers. These sermons were essentially my sermon notes and will hopefully help you in your studies, though I’m sure if I were to preach these again, there are some things I would change. Enjoy!

***Quick caveat: for those that have read my other sermons on this series, you will notice that this one is basically an outline. Evidently, I was very busy this week and did much of the sermon prep on paper! But feel free to incorporate this outline into your own studies.***
