When iam a boy somebody told me that you must respect your god first then your mother then your teacher then your father.The order is like that.Why it is like that? i dont know. Every humenbeing responsible for respecting his God.because he gave life to you.after that he gave you wealth,health...there are so many things that that make position of God first. Secondly mother comes.she gave birth to you and you grown up under her shadow... third comes teacher then father comes It is totally confusing me that why teacher comes third instead of father?. your father always cares you and spend lot of money for you.Teacher only teaches you after completing your course the connection with teacher will broken.But your connection with father remain till your death then why order is like that?

I dont think the order is like that , I think father comes first before teacher . First you have to understand your parents are your first teachers.Teaching doesnt mean only academic things.It is much different from that,You start your knowledge in every field from your parents. So I think you should respect yout father prior to your teacher.But god and mother comes in that same order.

Dear Son, someone has misguided you that Firstly respect your God then Your Mother then Teacher & then Father.This person that told you these words was not really aware of the real & correct Order which is thay: Firstly A person is obligated to give Respect & obey his God Then his Mother Then his Father & Then his Teacher. The Teacher comes AFTER the father not before him in being respected! Therefore dont be upset & frustrated about this wrong information you got when you were a child!ASK! DISCUSS! With your parents, your elders to get the right saying & teachings of your religion! this will give you the right path to lay your life & the most IMPORTANT thing the PEACE of MIND! which is a must to live lively! Hai naa?

According to the Bible, God ALWAYS comes first. You can't go wrong as long as you're putting God first.

it's to each his own... maybe the one who wrote that felt that he/she has learned more from his/her teacher than his/her father...

That ordering is according to somebody's preference. Another set of people would have their own, which might not even put God first! Others might choose the teacher first above either of the parents. There is no fixed rule about it. It depends on individuals and their life experiences.
