A Plea to the Older Christian Women

holy women of old

Listen closely older women. Can you hear the cries? Listen just a little closer…

You were called to a highly important task. One that is very much needed in this day and age. We are in a day where the majority of homes sit empty all day and divorce is at an all time high. You, older Christian woman, are needed indeed.

Titus 2

Titus 2:4-5 tells the older women that they should train the younger women to “love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed”.  But where are all these women to be found? Are they just too busy? Do they even exist anymore?

The younger women are searching. We need guidance; sound biblical guidance. We know what the world wants from us. The world would have us abandon our homes, leave our children to be raised by someone else and run from our husbands’ lion ready to devourdominating grips. The devil himself is waiting like a lion to devour our homes. But we are fighting it. And we could most assuredly use your help. We are deepWoman in field in the battle and we holler out, but it often seems no one is there to hear our battle cry. Take our hand. Allow us to learn from somebody that’s been through the battle and has emerged victoriously.

Show us by your godly example…how to love our husbands, how to respectfully submit to this earthly headship that God put in place. Show us to be discreet; cautious in our conduct, temperament and dress. Teach us to be chaste; pure in thought and in our actions. Teach us to be at home and to love our home by placing a high priority on your own home. Caring for all who enter there and even extending your loving assistance to the younger women within your sphere of life. Exemplify what godly submission of a wife to her husband should look like, respecting and esteeming your own husband above all others.

Whether you know it or not, we desperately need your example.

Will you take our out stretched hands and lead us up out of the trenches and on to victory in Jesus? We are desperately waiting…hand in rain

Blessings,

Mrs. G

  1. Yes I absolutely agree that we need to see that godly example from older women. Don’t see it much these days. It’s been almost 3 years since I lost my mom and since then I’ve had no one to guide me except for the Lord Himself. As far as older Christian women, hope and pray that they will step out in faith, get out of their little comfort zone and grab us by the hand and lead us so that we could be encouraged to do the same thing when we get older. Discipleship!!

    1. Yes. And a mother is irreplaceable. I am very thankful for my own mother and grandmother. Aside from that, it’s very hard to find. The younger women must also humble themselves in order to be taught and led. Many think there is nothing to learn from our elders and toss them aside but they are truly valuable to us.

  2. I agree with Keeper of My Home, younger women sometimes resent the older generation and wants to do everything their own way without advice. I have to content myself with being of help whenever possible and being an example of a godly lifestyle.

    1. Sadly true. We live in a very selfish society. Even so, please know that your godly example is invaluable and appreciated by many. We truly need to see more of that light in our current culture of darkness.
