Come on my favorite females!

we had a great sunday school lesson yesterday. (btw: have you ever noticed that most of my blog posts are from sunday school lessons? i don't think there is anything wrong with that......;)

we discussed our focus as young women and "what commands our attention", while using the book Girls Gone Wise by Mary A. Kassian....please get this book and read it and check out more info here: http://www.girlsgonewise.com/

but a question was asked in class that got my attention: "Who in this past month, has memorized atleast ONE bible verse?" i looked around the room to see who had raised their hand....only two, maybe three people.....i wasn't one of them.......

as i was thinking about this question, i suddenly felt ashamed of all of the young women in the class, including myself. hardly anyone had even tried to memorize a verse....(either that or there were plenty of people to shy to raise their hand...)

we were then challenged to memorize Titus 2:3-7; what it means to be a women.....

so, to those girls(or any young or older women...or anyone for that matter, who happens to read this blog):
Come on my favorite females! Lets try hard and start memorizing those verses, so that we can hide in our heart, what it means to be a Godly young women:

"Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love thier children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonered. Likewise urge the young men to be sensible; in all things show yourself to be an example of good deeds, with purity in doctrine, dignified," Titus 2:3-7

this verse reminds me that i am, in some way, an older women, and that i have younger women looking up to me, watching what i do, what i say, how i act, what i wear........i DO NOT want to lead them in the wrong direction, i DO NOT want to be a bad example to these precious younger women who are watching me......i DO want them to grow up and be Goldy young women of God, having wonderful examples to follow and i hope as a sunday school class, we can be that good example.......COME ON MY FAVORITE FEMALES!! WE CAN DO THIS!
