Teach the Younger Women

Titus 2:3-5 (KJV) talks about the older women and that they should teach the younger women:

The aged women likewise,
that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness,
not false accusers,
not given to much wine,
teachers of good things;

That they may teach the young women to be sober,
to love their husbands,
to love their children,

To be discreet,
chaste,
keepers at home,
good,
obedient to their own husbands,
that the word of God be not blasphemed.

The verses instruct the older women how to behave and how not to behave, that they ought to be teachers of good things, and what they should teach the young women.

Before we as older women can teach the younger, however, we ourselves must know what we are talking about when we are teaching. Therefore we need to diligently read and study God’s Word in order to build on a solid, unshakeable foundation. Then we have to put in practice what the LORD has taught us through His Word, and what He requires of us.

Seek the whole counsel of God, and know that the Word of God is still relevant today. All of it is! It is the manual for everyday living, and we should take it to heart. God knows best, and His advice works. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Women need to “Walk the walk” so that the Word of God is not blasphemed. (Titus 2:5)

When Gentiles, also known as unbelievers, are watching us what will they see? Are we only talking the talk? Will they doubt God is for real when they are watching how we are living? Does our walk agree with our talk? Do we teach others but refuse to teach ourselves? Are we growing and showing that Jesus is LORD over all of our life?

How will the girls and young women know if they are going in the right direction? Our daughters do need guidance in making their decisions. If we do not offer our counsel to them they will seek help somewhere else. The world will more than miss the mark in teaching our young women true love, hope, and faith. A worldly society pushes our daughters on to an ungodly path. It will bail out, however, when things get tough and/or advice them to take extreme actions.

Psalm 145:4 says that one generation shall praise to the next what God has done. We shall share with others how God works in our lives.

Let’s get busy to study, teach, and work at home.

Business at Home

The Proverbs 31 Woman is amazing, is she not? Yet many of us think that she is just too picture perfect to be true. Also, which woman could afford to stay at home these days? In our time and age, many of us either need to make a living on our own or we have to go to work because our family’s need for a second income. There are just too many bills to be paid, so one income does no longer seem to be enough for the average family.

Due to the pandemic that started in 2020 and went on for at least two years, many people were forced to work from home. This has opened up new opportunities for the ones of us who had always longed to stay with their family while still being able to earn some extra money.

This new category, namely “Business at Home”, will contain blog posts which talk exactly about that: being busy at home, having a home business that will provide a / second income.

I hope you will find one or the other post helpful to get you started with your own business at home.

Sing and Praise the LORD

 A Song. A Psalm of David.
O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.

Awake, lute and harp! I will awaken the dawn.

I will praise You, O LORD, among the peoples,
And I will sing praises to You among the nations.

Psalm 108:1-3

LORD Jesus we praise You for You are the mighty One. Hallelujah! You are the One who has made us. You are the One who has dwelt among us. You are the One who has loved us so, so much that You have died for us — in our place. You, O LORD, are the One who has called us. Forgive us, O God we pray, whenever we neglect to think about these things. Help us, precious LORD Jesus, and remind us of who You are and what You have done for us. Reach out to touch our hearts and guide us in our daily walk with You. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray. Amen.

If you are ever lost for words and ways on how to praise the LORD then go to the Books of Psalms. Beside some other psalms you will find an abundance of psalms of praises.

Today’s psalm in our reading plan is a good example of this. One of the ways to read it is by just reading it through. Another way of reading Psalm 108 is by going down verse by verse while making notes of it. You can do that using the second person — like that:

Let your heart be steadfast and sing. Praise Him! Sing praises to God Almighty among the peoples. Sing His praise among the nations.

or in a more personal way like that:

Let my heart be steadfast, and let me sing. I want to praise Him, and sing praises to God Almighty among the people. Oh that I may sing His praise among the nations.

Praise the LORD, and sing praises to Him today.
