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 urge 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 subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. ~ Titus 2:3
We hear, sometimes, this talk about Titus 2 women. Sometimes I have heard grumbling about why there aren’t more of them around and why they aren’t doing what God asks them to do. We long for this guidance and input. God designed us to pour out into our families and then, at a certain stage of life, to turn and pour into others so that they may be blessed with our wisdom: the hard-earned wisdom of experience.
One thing I love about blogging is all the friends I have been surprised to make around the globe as we write together with common purpose and kindred hearts. I have been blessed to be invited to be a guest over at “Teaching What is Good

I’ll be back here at HeartsHomeward for my usual Wednesday Parenting Wisdom next Wednesday to discuss Discipline vs. Punishment.
