I have been thinking of this blog off and on all day. I guess I was really thinking of the verse from Titus 3:5; “Let the older women teach the younger women to love their husbands, love their children, be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be dishonored”.
Teach the younger women to:
- love their husbands
- love their children
- be sensible
- be pure
- be workers at home
- be kind
- be subject to their own husbands
This brings to my mind my marriage, my children and my life. I asked myself what was the hardest parts of this for me to fill myself? How do I fulfill these areas? What am I still working on? (Hint: ALL of it!)
Having been a pastor’s wife for almost 30 years I am very aware of the marriages that are falling apart, kids that are left without a mom and dad in the same home and how promiscuity has become the way of life for many. While I know there are many young women out there who are working on their marriages and being the wife they are to be, we see wives who are not subject to their own husbands and are so independent and self-centered that they put only themselves first.
Where are you in all of this?
My next post will be taking a look at your marriage vows.
