Mother’s Love

Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children.
Titus 2:4, NIV

In the previous verse, the Apostle Paul wanted Titus to teach the older women how to live respectfully, share their opinions of others charitably, remain sober constantly, and teach the younger women to be good faithfully. The older women were not to live in this manner for their own benefit. They were to make a difference in the next generation, teaching the younger women, both by word and by example, how to love their husbands and children.

Healthy marriages and families do not magically appear on their own. They are the product of women who love Jesus, respect their husbands, nurture their kids, do their chores, drive their minivans, sign their homework, and get everybody out the door by seven thirty. All of this is held together by the grace of God and the strength of a mother’s love.
