But you, explain what kind of behavior goes along with sound teaching. Tell the older men to be serious, sensible, self-controlled and sound in their trust, love and perseverance. Likewise, tell the older women to behave the way people leading a holy life should. They shouldn’t be slanderers or slaves to excessive drinking. They should teach what is good, thus training the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to take good care of their homes and submit to their husbands. In this way, God’s message will not be brought into disgrace.
The Titus 2 woman is to teach her children about self controll and keeping their purity. While the world is at constant attack in many atmospheres one of the most dominant is the internet.
With the world of Technology growing by leaps and bounds, a majority of our communication takes place via email, blogging, twittering, facebooking etc. How can we make sure that we are living out Titus 2 in the cyber world so that the Word of God is not disgraced? How do we keep a balance between grace and hard Truth?
While I agree that I have not had a lot of older women in my life who have taught me the manner in which to live. It has been many of the women on the internet who have shared the wisdom with me. At that time I was a young mother with not a lot of opportunity to meet other women or to participate in church events. For the most part this was at my own fault. It was the women on the internet who taught me many different things about the world as well as our Lord. However, I was looking for the type of information that I found having grown up around older Christian women who I would have associated as Titus 2 women.
The internet is however very dangerous. It is very scary to just hop on line and meet with who ever. Years ago it was the chat rooms that were associated with trouble. Now if you look there are other social networks where you can meet friends some of which may not have your best interest at sight. It is these rooms and places that we must be aware of and protect our children from.
