“Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored.” (Titus 2:3-5)
A place to gather and participate in Titus 2:3-5
Marriage can be wonderful and marriage can be hard. No doubt about it. Raising kids and relationships with sons and daughters who have reached adulthood can be amazing and filled with challenges too. Whether one is married, single, divorced, or widowed it can be difficult sometimes to balance all the responsibilities in our lives. Many challenges can arise concerning our families, home, work, relationships, or other matters. Together with all this, we face challenges as we grow in our relationship with God and strive to live as he has called us to live. It helps to receive guidance and encouragement when needed about these things and to share the good that we experience.
Besides the important work of pastors and other leaders in the church, God has provided another means for Christian women to receive guidance and encouragement. This provision is found in Titus 2:3-5. It is a beautiful ministry of women being there for other women. This can happen in an organized or casual way. I feel the ideal is when it happens naturally. It’s great when sisters in the Lord connect and share in the joys and challenges of life together. It is a true blessing to see the ideas of Titus 2:3-5 put into practice out of Christian love and care.
Truth is, however, sometimes it doesn’t happen naturally or even in an organized way. It can be difficult or awkward to find someone in your personal life or church, and some churches are not set up with a focus in this area. Some women, like me, cannot easily connect due to health issues. Because of all these reasons, I have set up a forum for women to come together so that we may better experience the special provision that God has provided for us – each other!
