I love you Jesus and thanks to your blood Jesus Amen hallelujah

    I think following the commandment pretrial begins with our own mother and father,how we respected them or not as well as what we saw and took away from our lives as we grew up and how we applied them,honoring our parents was a commandment of our father,if you didnt listen to them well,chances r you probably will struggle with obedience,being submissive,good thing there is prayer and help from abov
