What does in mean to have “sound doctrine?” Isn’t doctrine something that divides? Actually, yes, doctrine does divide, and Jesus was quite intentional about making sure we adhere to His Truth. We’ve been talking about the Titus 2 woman this week, and we start with the Titus 2 man, because we women it says, are to do likewise:
But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine. 2 Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness.3 Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. 6 Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled. 7 Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, 8 and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us. 9 Bondservants[b] are to be submissive to their own masters in everything; they are to be well-pleasing, not argumentative, 10 not pilfering, but showing all good faith, so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior.
In Segment 2, we’re scooting up our chairs for our Bible study in I Samuel, with our Bible study teacher Beth Seifert. Be sure to download the notes in our Bible study tab on the menu. Tomorrow we will be introducing you to Samuel, a prophet whose life was incredibly significant!
