Titus 2:1-10 MSG

1 Your job is to speak out on the things that make for solid doctrine.
2 Guide older men into lives of temperance, dignity, and wisdom, into healthy faith, love, and endurance.
3 Guide older women into lives of reverence so they end up as neither gossips nor drunks, but models of goodness.
4 By looking at them, the younger women will know how to love their husbands and children,
5 be virtuous and pure, keep a good house, be good wives. We don't want anyone looking down on God's Message because of their behavior.
6 Also, guide the young men to live disciplined lives.
7 But mostly, show them all this by doing it yourself, incorruptible in your teaching,
8 your words solid and sane. Then anyone who is dead set against us, when he finds nothing weird or misguided, might eventually come around.
9 Guide slaves into being loyal workers, a bonus to their masters - no back talk,
10 no petty thievery. Then their good character will shine through their actions, adding luster to the teaching of our Savior God.
