The state of (in)dependence...

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVgrrEzmo5k&w=560&h=315] Commandment #5 says: "Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the Lord your God is giving you."  (Exodus 20:12)

It's easy to forget that we aren't here by our own doing.

As Pastor Brian said, "Life works best when we live in the humility of our dependence on someone else."

You and I were not brought about by our own doing...and we continue to need others!  Daily, we are dependant upon others (including God)!

What practical thing can you do TODAY can you  give honor to those whom you depend on? (God, parents, caretakers...etc.)  What are your thoughts?
