There’s no teacher equal to mother and there’s nothing more contagious than the dignity of a father. (Amit Ray, Indian author)
With so many single parent homes today, Ray’s comment seems out-of-date and almost meaningless. However, it offers a solution which, if it were only followed, would go a long way in restoring our families and neighborhoods. Raising strong families takes two: a mom who teaches her kids how to live and a dad who inspires dignity.
Honor your father and mother. This is the first commandment with a promise (Ephesians 6:2).
