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 2:4-5 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’ dominating 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 deep 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.
