Gathering at The Well - Titus 2: 2-5
Titus 2: 2-5,
2 Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance.
3 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.
4 Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children,
5 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.
Well, after I read this, the first respond I made was a shocked. Lol. I am so ashamed. First of all, I am not reverent at all, I am .. wait, I am not drinking wine. I don’t drunk. Lol. And to teach what is good. Well, I am lack of it. I can not train the younger women, wait, I haven’t married, I have no experience about it, about how to love the husband and the children. I can’t control myself, I am not pure, I am busy at home, but the question is not “are you busy?” or whatsoever but the fact, I think the question should be “you are busy doing what?” So, combining all of those real facts, of course, I got a sentence: I am a mess. Oh no! Have I made someone malign the word of God? Oh God, I am so sorry. I am a mess.
My goal now would be my characters. I realize that I have several bad characters and I need God to get rid of it. I learn and learn every day to get better. I want God keeps fulfill me with Him so that I am not me anymore. Only by Him added on me, I could change. I need Him to wash my whole bad character and change it into His character by Him. It’s only Him, not else.
