Fifteen Titus 2 Lessons that Every Young Christian Woman Needs to Know

Do you ever wish somebody would have taken you aside as a young adult and shared some serious truths with you about adulting?

I know that I do and as a middle aged woman it has become my ministry to ‘teach the younger woman’ based on Titus 2:3-5 to share and guide younger women.

Below are 15 lessons that I wished I had known as a younger woman (or a woman new in the faith) and every younger woman (or woman new to her faith) could learn from.

“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.  Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, 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.” 

Fifteen Titus 2 Lessons for the Younger Christian Woman

1. Don’t overreact based on how you feel, emotions are like the weather, changing often.  It is often hard to take back words or actions said in the heat of the moment. Rarely, will you regret staying calm and rational in your demeanor and actions.

2. Don’t be so offended at what others say or do to you.  Learn to love others and treat others with respect; despite mistreatment. Instead choosing to forgive and get over hurt being offended.

3. Listen to the wise counsel of older people and don’t assume that they are out of touch with reality or the world today. 

4. Worrying about your appearance is fruitless, invest the time and energy in working on developing your identity in Christ.

5. Gossip is a bad habit and believing rumors are detrimental to relationships. Even a little gossip is bad,  refuse to talk bad about anybody, period.

6. Hard work now pays off later. Just read Proverbs to see what it has to say on laziness.

7. Nobody is going to remember you for the gifts that you bought them, how nice of a car that you drove, or your beautiful home; but they will remember your character.  Kindness, integrity, hard work, forgiveness,  and gentleness are a few examples of the virtues a Christian should be remembered for.

8. Focus more in growing in your faith, than growing your bank account or personal assets.

9. Place your hope, joy, and trust in the Lord.

10.  Make reading your Bible a priority in your day.

11. Choosing a simple and frugal way of living.

12.  Learn to manage your money as a couple and learn how to communicate about money.

13.  Effectively managing your time with a schedule can result in a productive lifestyle.  

14.  Don’t be a people-pleaser, be a God-pleaser.  No other  opinion is more valuable that than of our heavenly Father. Ain’t nobody taking you to heaven with them.

15.  Do all that you can to stay out of debt, it is not worth it.  

What about you, what lessons have you learned that you wished you had learned at a younger age?
