          Doing it God's Way                                           

                                  With Reverend Michael Cartwright


Let's find out what God says about honoring our parents

  Let me tell you about my dad 



He did not finish grade school and he joined under age to serve in the military. My father went from no more than a elementary school education and got his GED and went on to further his education to become a Fire Chief in the Air Force as well as Fire Inspector in the Civil Service. My father developed his communication skills and turned his life around to someone with authority and respect to a God fearing man and has devoted his entire life to loving his family. 

I am very proud of both of my parents,

To this day he's still one of the greatest men of integrity and honor that I have ever met. Just like your dad loves you. He taught me rock solid values and character. Most of us would not be the man or woman that we are today if not for the many sacrifices that our fathers and mothers had made to give us a better life than what they had.

(You have to read the full story in my book: "God has my back so bring it on!)  I have a chapter in my book I feel that everyone needs to read, I believe it will bring a fresh perspective from the heart of a child.

I believe that all children should hold a story about their father that they carry in their hearts to remind them of the acts of love and sacrifice that their fathers have done for them. Just like their are many stories of God's love and sacrifice that he's done for us. The same is true with our fathers who God has blessed us with. And remember your parents are not your parents by accident. But by God's divine plan.

 Love your teenagers

These three brief stories have always kept me spiritually aligned in my love and respect for my father in my journey in my faith walk with my dad through out my life.

I bet if you ask your parents, they will share some stories from the heart about each other that you will carry with you that will keep your heart and your mind in alignment with honoring both your parents.

Satan has tried to take my life many times through out my life time. Even the day I was born, I was born prematurely at least a month early and I had lost a whole pound the same day which was not good especially back in 1957.And I ended up literally staying in the hospital for 30 more days in a incubator until I hatched or at least until I was allowed to come home.

And it was no different in my first story that I carry in my heart about my father's love for me. My dad was taking me to Houston or Dallas, Texas to get surgery on my eye to tighten my eye muscle. I had what you call a lazy eye. The bottom line was that this surgery was called out-patient surgery where I was suppose to go home the same day.After this simple surgery was over I was suppose to wake up and go home in a hour or so. Instead of waking up from this simple out-patient surgery in a hour or two after the surgery. I ended up not waking up from surgery for 3 days. Praise God that he protected me during this time. I have been told that people have died because of this. I know God heard my mom and my fathers prayers for me.

It was only years later that my mom told me about this story where I did not wake up from this surgery for 3 days. What made this so special to me was that I did not know my father did not have any extra money to spend for a motel room for those three days. My dad could have easily drove back home to the comfort of our home. But he chose to sleep those 3 days in our family car until I came back from la la land. My dad never once threw this in my face to make me feel a little guilty of his sacrifice. I don't even know if he ate during those 3 long days. I just know he was there for me just like God was during one of the most tragic times of my life and when I woke up and opened my eyes, I saw my dad with such a big grin on his face. My dad never spoke a lot of words, his actions that he was always there for me said it all.



May you always honor your mother and father and carry in your heart a story or two that keeps your attitude and respect for your parents on the proper level even when you find it hard too. It's not about that they don't understand you or if you feel your right and there wrong. It's about God's commandment to honor your mother and father and he will promise a long life to those who do. It is never too late to do this and you will be thankful that you had the disipline and the wisdom to do so. And I appreciate knowing everyone out there who respects their parents, God will bless you for it!  

"Cursed is the man who dishonors his father or his mother." Deuteronomy 27:16
