Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. Titus 2:3-5 (NIV)

Mother’s Day is just a day away. I hope to take some time this weekend to pay respects to all mothers. It is not possible to be with my mother since she lives in another state. I can however, pay my respects to someone in my life who embodies the grace and wisdom we associate with Godly mothers.

Growing up I did not have a Godly mother. It was not until I got saved and joined a church that I was able to look to other older women for my example of what a good mother should be. The pastor's wife took me under her wing. Her example encouraged me to be the mother I yearn to become.

The whole goal of a Titus 2 woman is to train younger women in Biblical, Spirit-empowered, love-based lives. This can be accomplished when we seek God first, rather then the counsel of other Godly women life.

Christian principles I have learned from the many other Godly mothers in my life, helped me to pass these lessons to the younger mothers God puts in my path. Now, I seek to be a Titus 2 woman.

Lord, help me to be a Godly mother, grandmother and an example to other mothers.
