Bible: Titus 2:1-8

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.
