Aged Women

"The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." (Titus 2:3-5)

I am blessed to have many "aged women" (Now ladies don't take this the wrong way) ;-) to help me along my journey, not only as a christian, but as a mother and wife. But it wasn't until my reading this morning that I realized to a friend of mine...I fall in this category. Now mind you...I am only 29 (which is old to some, but very young to most.) Every week when we talk she confides in me many struggles and triumphs....and she is usually looking to get my opinion. I just never realized it until this morning. Do I really teaach my friend to lover her husband, her child, and to be a discreet, keeper at home? It was a sobering thought this morning that I am much more aware of now, that I am a teacher not only to my children in school, but to other young women who are newlyweds or new mothers. May the Lord give me the strength and wisdom to lead her down the path of blessings of being a "Titus 2 woman."

You are the same age as my daughter, and I am definately an "aged woman." How wonderful it is that you are aware of your influence on others and the desire that you have to lead them in the right direction. Thank you for sharing this.
