Titus 2:3-8: likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanders or addicted to too 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. Similarly, encourage the younger men to be self-controlled. In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.
The above verse talks about how older women and older men should show the younger women and men how to live. In today’s society the young people are lacking good Christian role models. They are turning against what older men and women are saying because they feel judged and they are turning to trying looking, acting and dressing like the poor role models that they see on t.v, like women who show everything that God gave them and men who degrade and treat their women badly. Now do not get me wrong there are a few good role models for them to follow but the bad ones are way more appealing and more in number than the good role models. We also have older men and women in the church who judge young people instead of gently correcting them like God says in Galatians 6:1.
Along with the older men and women judging the younger men and women they also are not leading by example. Most older men and women especially in the church are slanders, judgmental, drink too much wine and rude. We are all a family spiritually and non spiritually and we need to treat each other as such. If older women and men aren’t being the good examples and treating younger men and women with respect what can we expect out of the younger generations? We need to step it up and be family as God called us to be and walk in unity with each other with no judgments. Older men and women be like God says in Titus 2:3-8 and younger men and women boys and girls listen even when your flesh flares up and you feel offended. Older men and women are wiser and have more experience than you do so if they are trying to correct you listen ask them to pray for you and go to God and pray for yourself.
