Even though you may become more richer than they are, you still have to look up to them as they represent me (God) on earth. Always, remember to put them in your prayers so their days will be long.
At their old age make sure you take proper care of them and look after them always, secure them with your last breath, so they will be happy staying around you.
The tasks above are very simple one but our canal body may make it look bulky in the eyes. But this is what the Lord has commanded us all to do, if we really wanna know his plans for us. May the good Lord bless his holy words in our hearts, Amen.
