No Experience Necessary

 

It amazes me in reading some of these large blogs with several contributing writers how there are writers based on what? Very little to NO experience.Yes some of them are great at writing but based on the theme of the blogs they have no experience in life, very minimal in raising children and have not been married for very long.

These scriptures of instruction ring through my ears often as I read blogs like that...

Titus 2:3-5

The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

Where are the older women who are to teach the younger? Does this standard not exist in the blogging world? What does a young mom,whose children have not even started schooling yet, who has only been married for like 5 years have to show a mom who has been married 20 years and has grown children, teenagers and young ones all in the same house. I am not saying I couldn't learn something, if you are open to the working of the Holy Spirit, the Lord is always at work. But geez-- really,where are the older women? Or is it like everything else we compromise, " so we can be sure we reach all ages"?

I am going to get up on my soapbox for a little bit. I have no problem reading blogs of younger women, with less experience and younger children, but with these large teaching blogs, well let me say I am the age I am because of time, and I know what I know because of experience, and I have the wisdom that I have because of both of the above. I am stepping off the soapbox now....

What criteria do you have? Does it match up to scripture?
