Titus 2: 1-8
You, however, must teach what is appropriate to sound doctrine. 2 Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance.
3 Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. 4 Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, 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.
6 Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled. 7 In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness 8 and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.
There is an old cliché that says, “Do as I say ad not as I do.” This is not so for us who have proclaimed Jesus to he head of our lives. We have a different responsibility, one that should not be taken lightly. Not only are we responsible for our own living, but we are also responsible for the way we portray ourselves to others in our living. I will put it this way… How can you tell me how to raise kids if you don’t have any? How can you tell me how to go to a job interview if you don’t have a job? That is why Jesus came down and dwelled among us. He led the perfect example, upright and never sinning. We may not be able to live a perfect life, but we can be examples to those around us. Parents, let your children see you pray. Children, let your kids know you worship Jesus. Let’s all be examples today. Remember, actions speak louder than words. People will remember what you have done before they remember what you have said. Be blessed.
