"Our modern systems of eldercare have generally failed to emphasize the responsibilities of children to their elderly parents, yet the honor of parents as commanded in the fifth commandment must include this care of the elderly, according to our Lordâ€™s words in Matthew 15:4-5. Every one of us should be asking ourselves in Jesusâ€™ words, â€śIs there anyplace where we have made the commandment of God of none effect, by our traditions?â€ť (Matt. 15:6)."
