Honor Your Father and Mother

It doesn't surprise me but it does delight me when I see secular people grasping for a biblical solution when their worldly methods have failed. A great example is in a county in China where special investigators are trying to find out how you treat your parents before they will allow you to remain as a government official.

The article is found at Reuters Oddly Enough and is called Want a promotion? Treat Mom well. Here's a quote from the article...
China's leaders are fretting about how to support its aging population, and worried about slipping moral standards as younger generations rush to take advantage of the booming national economy.
Here's a quote from God's Word...
Honor your father and your mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the Lord your God is giving you. Exodus 20:12
