37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
37 Verse 37. He that loveth father or mother more than me] He
whom we love the most is he whom we study most to please, and
whose will and interests we prefer in all cases. If, in order to
please a father or mother who are opposed to vital godliness, we
abandon God's ordinances and followers, we are unworthy of any
thing but hell.
