Ephesians 6:1-4

1Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.

2"Honor your father and mother"--which is the first commandment with a promise-- 3"that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth."

4Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.

Stacey is on the phone. She wants to go to the mall with her friend, Linda, and she needs her parents' permission. Her father, Stan, offers to take her in his truck, but Stacey turns it down, mentioning her friends seeing him driving the truck. The father, thinking that she's ashamed of him, takes the phone and says that Stacey will see Linda on Monday, humiliating his daughter. She goes to her room, thinking that her father doesn't love her very much. Stacey's mother soon comes to her room and shows her a letter that her father wrote when Stacey was 1 year old. It was very, very nice, It showed his love for Stacey and it didn't sound like him at all. Stacey makes a letter for her father apologizing for what she said, and showing her love for him. After seeing the letter, her Dad offers to take his truck to a restaurant where none of her friends go to. A father-daughter reunion.
