Titus 2:6 ESV "Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled."I took the time to explain to him, why we shouldn't act that way! Today's verse shares that we should urge younger men to be self controlled and it insinuates that we should be that way too! I thought back to my youth, and how there were times when I let the my emotions, my anger run my life. It made for some very bad situations and I thank God my parents never gave up in trying to teach me that's not a good way to live. Watching my grandsons grow up, I see moments where they need to hear today's Word. Rather than yell at them, I try to explain why some behavior isn't appropriate. Learning self control is a life long process but we can get there when we focus on how Christ from the Cross didn't lash out but simple said "forgive them!" Being under control allows us to be the example of Christ when the world may seem to be out of control! peace, tom
