The Apostle Paul Backs Up Mothers

“…speak evil of no one, – avoid quarreling, – be gentle, and – show perfect courtesy toward all people.” -Titus 3:2

This verse reminds me so much of what mothers endeavour to teach thier children.  There is a larger context, but on the face of it it is just really good motherly advice. Mothers are always telling thier children one of the following:

  • Don’t call them that even if it’s true!
  • Stop fighting over stupid stuff!
  • Don’t play so rough!
  • Mind your manners!

I think Paul was reading my mom’s mind. So today remember all those good things your mom taught you. She’s got God on her side!
