Titus 2: Our Mother

("Titus 2" refers to the way we should all be living, but particularly to Titus's urging for older women to be teaching younger women.)

Our mother is most definitely the older woman who has had the most influence on us. We are so thankful that she is a godly woman; what a treasure those of us have who have had the privilege to be around women like this from birth! There are countless things we have learned from our mother, and we will each post a top 10 list later (and probably more after that!). But for now, suffice it to say that we are grateful to have a mother who exhibits the following:

"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
