|Paul's Letter to Laodicea|
[3.30] And you, children, obey your parents totally in everything, as long as it is not against Christ; because that is His Will and it pleases Him.
[3.31] You, parents, do not make the hearts of your children bitter through harsh words and abuse, so that they become timid towards you, thereby becoming cowards and hypocrites; but an apparently stubborn child can be reared to be supple through love, but a flatterer and a hypocrite is incorrigible.
[3.32] Therefore, I say to you, the servants of your masters: Obey them in all things, as long as they are not against Christ, but not merely through eye-service to please your master, but in the true simplicity of your hearts, and in the constant fear of God.
