Today's Verse: Titus 2:3

Wednesday, July 26, 2023

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.
— Titus 2:3

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

"Teach... to teach!" We need faithful women who reverence God in Jesus' family. We need them to demonstrate how to reverence God in our daily lives through their Christ-like character. They need our encouragement "to teach what is good" for our coming generations. We should pray that such women step forward and mentor others in godliness as we respect their reverent lifestyles. As for those of us such women have blessed, we must thank God for them and hold them up as examples to others in Jesus' family!

My Prayer...

Holy and righteous Father, please raise up women of godly character and faithful service. Please give us the eyes to see their reverent lives and hearts that hold them as dear examples for your people. Thank you for the many godly women in our Christian heritage who have had tremendous impact for good — women like Deborah, Esther, Mary, Dorcas, and Priscilla. I also want to thank you for those godly women who have made such a tremendous difference in my life and taught me so much about faith, hope, and love. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
