Titus 2:3-5 (NASB) Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands so that the word of God will not be dishonored.
I was reading a blog post by Courtney over at Women Living Well about 5 radical qualities young women should pursue. Courtney discusses what Paul is writing about in Titus 2. She does a wonderful job breaking down each verse and the qualities that a young woman should try to acquire. You should take a few moments and read her take on Titus 2
I am blessed to have 2 Titus 2 women in my life. I have known my friend June for 14 years. Through the years she has prayed for me and with me (and my family), encouraged me, challenged me and laughed with me. She is usually the first person my husband calls when he sees that I need to get out of the house and be encouraged. She is a wonderful example of a Godly wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend.
I’ve only known my friend Joan for a few years but she too has prayed for me, challenged me and we certainly laugh together… frequently! She loves the Lord, her husband and her children. She takes her role as a Titus 2 woman seriously and will lovingly mentor anyone. Her passion is to help other women become a Titus 2 woman and to help them strengthen their relationships with the Lord, their husbands and their children.
I pray that one day I can serve others as my 2 friends have served me and my family.
ps – you really should check out Courtney’s blog. She is a gifted writer and does not shy away from speaking the truth of the Bible.
