- When you read the Scripture found in Titus 2:2-5, how do you see this playing out in your own life?
- What are your areas of strength? Of weakness?
- If you could set some sort of goal in relation to this Scripture, what would it be?
Teach older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled and sound in faith, in love and in endurance. Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subjected to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
Titus 2:2-5 may only be four verses long, but it is packed with advice on how I, as a mother and wife, can walk close with God. For me these aren't just guidelines that I might want to follow. These verses are a life line to joy. They help me walk the path God has for me as a mother, wife and woman.
One area of strength would be that I am busy at home. I love being a home-maker for my family. I enjoy all the aspects of keeping a home. I strive to make my home a place where we can find rest, peace, joy and comfort.
An area of weakness would be self-control. At times I let things bother me way more than I should. I tend to be a perfectionist so I can loose a little of my self-control when things don't go as I planned!
As I continue to study these verses my desire is to focus on showing pure love to my husband and children. God commands us to love others as we love our selves. We are to put others first before ourselves. Ephesians 6:7 says, "Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men,". I must remember to serve my family with love, self-control and kindness. To do so will reflect Christ's love. If I love my family as Christ loves me, then I will be able to say that I am living as a Titus 2 woman.
