Just a little something to think about...
While all of us are called to be ministers of reconciliation:
2 Cor 5:18-19
All this is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:
19 that God was reconciling the world to Himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them.
I have been thinking so much lately about the specific call of a woman.
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.
For younger women (I would assume that is pre-Grandma age- NOT that Grandma's are old, but by then you should be training the younger women), He puts loving your husbands and children at the top of the list.
And...being busy at home....hmmm.
I think this has been lost somewhat in our culture.
What do you think?
If you are older...is this the message you are teaching?
If you are younger...do you see the importance of the call to love your husband and children etc.?
As I mull it over, I would love your input.
(I will touch more on the "being subject to your husbands" next Tuesday.)
Our hope is in Him,
