I realize that this 2016 and not the 1890’s or even the 1950’s. The golden days of June Cleaver are over and done. But I want you to notice from a Christian perspective these admonitions have not changed, just as many other things have not changed.
Just because we live in so-called “modern days” does not mean as Christians we have the right to throw the Bible in the trash can.
The Bible is more relevant today to the believer as the Wall Street Journal is to the investor.
Gods Word still tells His people how to live.
Fashions may change.
Occupations may change.
Hobbies may change.
The entire world may change around us but that doesn’t relegate the Bible to the dust bin.
This passage tells women how to live.
Notice it doesn’t say; Get a college education or make sure you have a good career.
“The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things That they may teach the young women to be sober to love their husbands, to love their children To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” Titus 2:3-5
If your idea of a being a good wife is laying around on the couch talking on the phone, watching the TV or spending hours on the computer while the house looks like something off of a “hoarders” reality show…you need help.
You need one of the “aged women” to teach you how not to be a “stay at home slug”.
