Honor your father and mother that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you. This doesn't mean you'll die younger if you talk back. It means there's more to life than winning the argument. Sin breaks stuff, and we're so blind to that fact that we sometimes fail to see how much damage it can do. God gives His law not just to condemn our sin, but to reveal to us something we'd fail to figure out on our own.
