When I read the words of Titus 2 my heart stings a little.
“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 2:3-5
It stings because I remember reading these words as a single woman and wanting so desperately to be included – so desperately to have the benefit of an older woman who could urge me on, encourage me, and train me.
Even though I wasn’t married, I needed a Titus 2 woman.
And I think most single women do.
Today I am honored to be a guest writer at Teresa’s Thought for Today. Teresa writes about faith, family, and food.
Will you join me there as we continue to discuss Titus 2 women and the single woman?
