Titus, promote the kind of living that reflects wholesome teaching. Teach the older men to exercise self-control, to be worthy of respect, and to live wisely. They must have sound faith and be filled with love and patience. Similarly, teach the older women to live in a way that honors God. They must not slander others or be heavy drinkers. Instead, they should teach others what is good.
Many of us have known the importance of a trusted mentor. I’ve had a number in my spiritual journey without whom I probably would not be here today. Recovery groups or other Biblically sound support groups are also healthy ways to spend our time as we seek to know God better and to grow in spiritual knowledge.
Tomorrow we will be commencing week 3 of this six-week series ‘Building Healthy Support Networks.’ We can’t progress much in recovery in isolation. Developing healthy networks goes alongside turning our wills and lives over to God. We all need accountability in our lives in order to live the lives God has planned for us each.
