Titus 2 - Let the older women teach the younger women

How blessed I am! I can barely remember the years I lamented to the LORD that I had no older Titus 2 ladies in my life. Then came that fateful day when a younger woman called me her older Titus 2 woman!

How the LORD has allowed me to mature! :) Now years later, the LORD has woven so many older godly Titus 2 women into my life that I am blessed a thousand times over!

As godly women, here are three things to remember:

1) When we reach out to others to bless them, the LORD usually works in our own hearts and it is we who are blessed multiple times over.

2) No matter what your age, you can be a Titus 2 woman. There is always someone younger than you, in age or in spiritual maturity, that you can minister to.

3) Be willing to observe and listen to the beautiful Titus 2 women in your life and see how the LORD can bless you and them.

I hope this encourages you.

We touched on this verse in our Bible study tonight (actually, we were talking about self-control being a fruit of the Spirit - the Jerry Bridges book we are using referenced it) and it got me thinking about discipleship. We could all benefit from advice, and sometimes you just can't get it from books. I'm talking about things like how to respond in a given child-rearing situation; how to discuss matters like tithing with your husband when you disagree; how to act/react when your parents aren't saved. I talk to my pastor's wife, but PWs can't be the go-to person for 300 women. We can all learn in many ways from more wise and experienced Christian women!
