Titus 2:3 says, Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves too much wine. They are to teach what is good.
Okay ladies it’s time to talk about this five letter word which makes most of us cringe, It’s called aging. Now fellows don’t think I left you out of the equation because I didn’t. Do you remember the first sign or age you was when you started to see grey hair? Oh my the grey hair syndrome, when it happen to me I was 16 years old back then having a long piece of grey hair wasn’t as bad as I made it to be.
But did you notice here in the verse that Titus never talked about the outside change we go through. He is telling us that we who are older are to bring along side of us the young women and teach them the wisdom that was past down to them. But in these days we don’t do much of that do we? We all can probably look within our own churches and see if this is really being taught and if the young are along side the older people.
These days most young people think that an older or elderly person is just being nosy and they don’t think they can learn anything from them. But you know I love being around older people not that I would talk but I would listen to what they had to say. And I learned so much from them.
So maybe we should not give so much of our energy to our appearance and what transformation we are going through but reach out to our young ladies and young men and let them learn from us.
But aging is not to bad as we think for the best is yet to come. Just last year I started getting pimples don’t know why I never got those thing even when I was a teenager. And though I am in pre-menopause I know eventually this will pass and my family especially my hubby will be so glad, he’s been a trooper trying to understand all this. I tell him wait till yo go through your mid-life crises. I think he’s already in it but he won’t confirm it.
We all know what Titus is saying and we all have a part to play.These young women and men need our help. AMEN
