The Young Woman: Lessons for a Teacher (Titus 2:4b-5)This is a continuation of our series on Titus 2. Find Part 1 here.Paul does not profile the “young women” as he did the older, but rather describes seven lessons the young moms need to hear and learn from the older mothers. These lessons are obviously about qualities that the older women have already acquired, which is why they are qualified to teach them. So these are qualities for every woman, and every mother. Paul says that the purpose of learning these qualities is about much more than just becoming a better woman, wife, and mother; it is “so that the word of God will not be dishonored.” Teaching and embodying these qualities helps preserve the integrity and honor of the Scriptures that you are teaching.Answer the questions below about how you personally can grow in each quality as a godly woman, and help those in your Mom Heart group to grow in each quality as godly young women.• “Love their husbands” (literally, husband-lovers) – How am I, every day, choosing to love and prefer my God-provided husband? How can I encourage younger moms to practice loving and enjoying their husbands.• “Love their children” (literally, child-lovers) – How am I, every day, choosing to love and prefer my God-given children? How can I encourage younger moms to develop loving attitudes and words of grace for their children?• “Sensible” – How am I becoming sound-minded and self-controlled, curbing my desires and impulses in order to live sensibly?
