Just a few days ago the thought crossed my mind that older women probably don’t know how to teach young women anymore. The Bible advocates that older women teach the younger women how to love their husbands, among other things.
“That they (older women) may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” Titus 2:4,5
I don’t know of any individual older woman who is currently doing what Paul advised Titus to set up. I am sure there are many who are doing so, but I simply have not met any recently.
My musings floated on to the fact that an older woman who may wish to teach younger women would probably benefit from a curriculum for doing so. There must be a worthy scope and sequence that could be developed (or may have been developed) to empower women to instruct each other. If you know of such a curriculum please let me know.
In the absence of any such curriculum at my disposal I am tempted to give some thought to the issue and see what I am prompted to bring together into such a learning process. If I do get around to it I’ll be sure to let you know what I come up with.
