This week’s podcast concludes the series on Titus Two Womanhood by looking at the “good things” older women are to teach the younger women, that is, Godly wisdom as defined in James 3:17.

“When Paul wrote the letter to Titus, he chose a very specific word to describe how he wanted older women to relate to younger women. Translated as “teach” in modern translations, Paul used the Greek word “so-fron-id’-zo” which literally means “to bring to ones’ senses,” to admonish and exhort earnestly, to disciple with the goal of the younger women taking their callings as wives and mothers seriously, of being sober minded, realizing the gravity of responsibility they had. It is a word that suggests the exercise of self-restraint that governs all passions and desires, enabling the believer to be conformed to the mind of Christ.”
