Titus 2:4 states something to the effect of older women training younger women to love their husbands and children. This to me is a very important verse of the Bible, and it can teach us a lot.As a woman, it is hard to learn how to be a wife and mother. We can seek help from God and His word, but it is still hard to understand all of these things let alone putting them into practice. I believe this is why God made sure that this verse was included. In my life there are a lot of older, Godly women that I have looked up to. Many of these women have now passed away and most of them I did not know very well. I wish sometimes that I would have gotten to know them better because they illustrated so many features of how Godly wives should be.
I was at a funeral for my great uncle this week and I listened to his daughter speak of her father. Included in her speech were details about her mother and how much her father loved her. Her father had told her so many times throughout life what an excellent, Godly person his wife was.
This is so true of many women that are now nearing the age of death. If you can get to know women like this, you may be able to learn some valuable things about being a good wife and mother. Find some older women to learn from. Believe me, they have a lot to share and the lessons that they teach you will benefit you, your children and your marriage.
