The Largely Catechized Life #21: God gave you your parents

God gives His law because He wants to see you taken care of. It’s easy to see in the first table of the law. God commands us to find salvation in Him and His gifts. It’s still true in our neighbor. God commands you to love and honor your parents. It’s not because they earn it. It’s because God wants to work through them for you.
