Any guidelines

Can you focus and know what to do

Older men
Be temperate
Be worthy of respect
Be self-controlled
Be sound in faith
Be sound in love
Be in endurance

Older women
Be reverent in the way they live
Be NOT slanderers
Be NOT addicted to much wine
But to teach what is good
Be trainers of young women
Train

Young women
To love their husbands and children
Be self-controlled and pure
Be busy at home
Be kind
Be subject to their husbands
–so that the Word of God will not be dishonored.

Young men
Be self-controlled
Be an example by doing what is good

Leaders or teachers
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

Slaves
Be subject to their masters in everything
To try to please them
NOT to talk back to them
NOT to steal from them
But
To show that they can be fully trusted
–so that making teaching about Him attractive

Grace of God
Brings
Salvation
To all men

Say “NO” to ungodliness
Say “NO” to worldly passions

Say “YES” to live
self-controlled
Upright
Godly lives
In this present age

While we wait for
The blessed hope
Christ–gave himself
to redeem us from all wickedness
To purify us
We are His people
Eager to
Do what is good

Inspiration from Titus 2 : 1-12
