titus 2

Titus 2:3-5
" The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior 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."

I really love this scripture. I love that it tells us not only what sort of women we aught to be. Chaste, good and obedient, but it also gives us a commision to raise up our daughters and the young women of the church, the young women of the world really to be family minded.
I think so much emphasis is put on having a career. The message now adays seems to be that selfish persuits will make you, as a women "fullfilled". Then when you get around to it you can have a family.
I believe there is no greater thing on this earth I could be doing than raising my family. Loving and supporting my husband and helping my children to grow and love God.

I like this scripture too. A reminder that we are to look not only at ourselves but to help others see the value in family.
