Profile of a Godly Wife and Mother
INTRODUCTION: There are obviously many varied opinions about what a woman should be like in our day and age and what a mother should or should not do. Let us consider what scripture says a mother should be and should do-the profile of a godly mother. We will read from the Epistle to Titus, the shortest of the pastoral epistles, which was written by the Apostle Paul to his son in the faith who was pastoring the church in Crete. The Christians in Crete were influenced by the prevailing low moral standards in their society and, perhaps, by a misinterpreting of the grace of God to mean that salvation was somewhat unrelated to daily conduct. Titus was urged to insist on behavior that is founded upon sound biblical doctrine. In Titus 2, Titus lays down some of the Christian attributes commanded to different groups according to age, gender and marital status. Here we find sound teaching for older men and women, for younger men and women, for grandmothers, mothers, slaves and good citizens.
