This week I began a new bible study with some women from my friend’s church; to be honest I’ve never really participated in a bible study unless you count Sunday school so this is something different for me. In this study we are reading Feminine Appeal, it’s based upon this passage from Titus 2:“Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can teach the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.”
Here we, as women, are given seven feminine virtues to live by: loving my husband, loving my children, self-control, purity, honor in working at home, kindness and submission. As we delve further into the book we will be learning how each of these virtues relate to our daily, modern lives.
I’m really looking forward to how God will reveal Himself to me through this study. Being a relatively young wife, I know that I still have a lot to learn; most of the women in the study group have been married for 8+ years and have kids so I’m hoping to learn as much as I can from them and their experiences.
