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. Titus 2:5
As mentioned yesterday, it’s easy to get distracted in this life. Paul’s words here reinforce the need for younger women to tend to the details of the home front, to keep the home fires burning, so to speak. It doesn’t help that the world keeps screaming for women to get back into the workplace as soon as possible. There’s a reason, though, that God was very specific about this topic with the ladies. Family was and still is important in God’s eyes. It’s important raising God-fearing children. It’s important being true to your spouse. It’s important that the children see the parents loving each other.
Today would you pray for that young wife you know who may be struggling with the day to day busyness of life. Pray that she will continue to cast all her burdens on the only One who can handle them.
