Pay a visit to Grandma and Grandpa—or else they’ll see you in court. In China, a new law went into effect yesterday requiring people to care for their elderly parents, with provisions calling for children to see them regularly or at least call on the phone. The law is intended “to protect the lawful rights and interests of parents aged 60 and older, and to carry on the Chinese virtue of filial piety,” the official China Daily newspaper reports, and the legislation gives seniors leverage to use on offspring. “Parents whose children live apart from them and fail to visit regularly can ask for mediation or file a lawsuit,” the newspaper says.

 

 

WOW!!! Is all I can say. China was - at least for me - the last hold out of countries that respected their elders!!!

2 Tim 3:1-5 GLOBAL!!! and with NO doubts - we are at the END!!!

 

Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!!!!!
