I love the picture of “doctrine” that Paul paints for us in Titus 2. Yes, Paul calls it doctrine in Titus 2:1 – “But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine.”
Yesterday, I read a post by a friend of mine. This post reminded me of part of Titus 2.
Now, you should know that both Meagan and Lindsay (the teenage girl that Meagan talks about in her post) are part of the church that we meet with. So, you could say that I have a ring-side seat to the relationship that Meagan writes about.
But, as I read Meagan’s post, I couldn’t help but think about this passage (even though she doesn’t mention it):
Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. (Titus 2:3-5 ESV)
I’m not going to give away anything that Meagan writes, so jump over to her post and read it.
After you read it, ask yourself if you are investing your life into the lives of others the way that Meagan and Lindsay are. If not… get started!
