God's Word

Titus 2:3 "Tell older women to live their lives in a way that shows they are dedicated to God. Tell them not to be gossips or addicted to alcohol, but to be examples of virtue. "
This doesn't say 'women is higher positions at the church' it says older women. So any older woman. This could mean ANY of us! If there are women younger then you, then you are the older woman.
And you can "show" you are dedicated to God, by living your life fully dedicated to Him. As part of being an example, we shouldn't be simply beautiful outwardly, but most beautiful 'inside'. Notice the first thing said is "tell them not to be gossips...". One definition of gossip is "to talk idly, especially about the affairs of others; go about tattling." Ever find yourself doing THAT? I think we all do, more then we care to share.
We are to be examples of virtue, or moral excellence; goodness; righteousness. Are we virtuous???
