Bible: Titus 2;5
Conduct Consistent with Sound Teaching
2:1 But as for you, communicate the behavior that goes with 1 sound teaching. 2:2 Older men are to be temperate, dignified, self-controlled, 2 sound in faith, in love, and in endurance. 3 2:3 Older women likewise are to exhibit behavior fitting for those who are holy, not slandering, not slaves to excessive drinking, but teaching what is good. 2:4 In this way 4 they will train 5 the younger women to love their husbands, to love their children, 2:5 to be self-controlled, 6 pure, fulfilling their duties at home, 7 kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the message 8 of God may not be discredited. 9 2:6 Encourage younger men likewise to be self-controlled, 10 2:7 showing yourself to be an example of good works in every way. In your teaching show integrity, dignity, 2:8 and a sound message that cannot be criticized, so that any opponent will be at a loss, 11 because he has nothing evil to say about us. 2:9 Slaves 12 are to be subject to their own masters in everything, 13 to do what is wanted and not talk back, 2:10 not pilfering, but showing all good faith, 14 in order to bring credit to 15 the teaching of God our Savior in everything.
2:11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people. 16 2:12 It trains us 17 to reject godless ways 18 and worldly desires and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, 2:13 as we wait for the happy fulfillment of our hope in the glorious appearing 19 of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. 20 2:14 He 21 gave himself for us to set us free from every kind of lawlessness and to purify for himself a people who are truly his, 22 who are eager to do good. 23 2:15 So communicate these things with the sort of exhortation or rebuke 24 that carries full authority. 25 Don’t let anyone look down 26 on you.
