“Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine” (Titus 2:3a).

Be dutiful and keep what you know to yourself.  This may sound easy, but look at how many gossip and slander.  Do not be deceived, this behavior is not acceptable in the sight of the Lord.  Walk humbly with Your God and live in the character of what is right and fitting.  You do not need to guess what these things are, for here you have them before you.  Put them into practice.

Lord, our world wants to know what others think.  When we do not know, there are the evil ones who will make it up.  Take away the desire to know information that is not proper for me to know.  Lead me to be content with what You do give me.  Guide me in Your goodness to see that in You alone is all hope.  Help me to develop the character befitting one who is a follower of Christ.

Lord Jesus, You have come into the world so that I may have life and have it abundantly.  You have also come to fulfill the will of the Father.  Guide me Lord in the way of everlasting life in order that where these things are present in me, I may be conformed to Your image.  Help me see clearly where I need what You alone can give.  Guide me Jesus in the way of life which I have been given through grace.  Amen.
