Titus 2 Women

On Sunday we looked at the amazing honour that older women have in training younger women. We also got to interview a real ‘Titus 2 woman’.

You can hear the sermon here.

Here is a very helpful quote that my wife drew my attention to:
“Finally, I make a plea to those whose children are grown and on their own. Our culture says you are “empty nesters”. I much prefer the term a friend coined, “open nesters.” Your nest is now open to minister to a variety of people. You also have a strategic place in the war against mothers and children (and their godly influence). Your assignment comes from Titus 2:3-5 “Older women likewise are to be reverent in behaviour, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train young women to love their husbands and children, to be self controlled, pure, working at home, kind, submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled” (emphasis added).

 

Feminism seeks to revile God’s name and word. It has sown much discord and false teaching, and young women today are reaping the bad fruit. They need the life perspective of older women- they need your testimonies of God’s faithfulness, numerous praise reports from the years you have walked with God. Younger women need your instruction in both the practical and spiritual aspects of motherhood. In fact the need is so great that the marketplace is stepping in to meet it, having sniffed out the opportunity for a profit. When Titus 2 mentors aren’t available, mothers have no choice but to turn to commercial consultants… Your counsel is obviously valuable for practical matters. How much more so in terms of spiritual matters for mothers and children?”
