Wholesome teaching leads to wholesome living. Titus 2

From my reading in Titus 2 in the One Year Bible New Testament.

Wholesome teaching leads to wholesome living.

Paul challenged Titus to teach people how to live.

“As for you, Titus, promote the kind of living that reflects wholesome teaching.” Titus 2:1

It is not enough to explain doctrines of the faith. We should be faithful to do that. But we must also show people how to live. Here are some of the people that Paul told Titus to teach.

Younger Women

  • Live wisely

Younger Men…
