“Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honor your father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise.” (Ephesians 6:1-2)
Whether you’re 6, 16 or 26, surprise surprise, you still count as one of the children of your parents! But oh, how hard it is to obey them in everything, right? And I completely understand!
After I graduated, I asked permission to go on a mission trip to Nepal. My parents (who are not Christians and do not understand why I would want to go on a mission trip) didn’t want me to go. At first, I felt that it was so unfair because they said no only because they didn’t understand. I asked God to make my parents say “yes” because after all, this mission trip is for Him. But God told me to just obey, so I did. I was sad, but I obeyed.
Instead of going to the mission trip, I started working instead at a company who was in need of a graphic artist. That’s where I met my now husband, Mor! :) If I went on that mission trip, maybe the company would have hired someone else in my place and I would never have met Mor. That little act of obedience apparently made a huge impact in my life! 
Remember, God says “obey your parents in the Lord”, that means, in accordance with God’s Word. The only time you can ‘disobey’ your parents is when they are asking you to do something contrary to God’s Word (like if they ask you to steal or to cheat). Otherwise, you’re not exempted from this, whether your parents are Christians or not! God, throughout the Bible, tells us to respect authority. Parents are included, of course! ;)
But trust me, you won’t regret it! You will look back months or years from now thinking “I’m so glad I obeyed my parents!” I sure did! :)
