The Well - Being a Titus 2 Woman

Editress' Note: Chelsey from the Joy Reflected blog used to sponsor a weekly question regarding Titus 2 living called "At the Well." Some of my other contributions to this meme may be found here.

What does being a Titus 2 woman mean to you?

First of all, it means knowing to whom Titus 2 is written. It was written to a pastor who was told to encourage the older Christian women in his church to teach the younger women to be godly wives and mothers. Leaving out the older women or refusing to be an older woman mentor both derail the intention of these verses.

I sincerely believe that if the older women would take these verses to heart, then the younger women would eventually follow. However, it requires by default that the younger women be open to receive what the older women have to offer. I've discussed this in another post called Where Have All the Aged Women Gone?.

May the Lord raise up a whole army of women who work in symbionic relationship as a body of believers in Christ should.
