Trying something new today...

Gathering At the Well



So, I'm going to try something new today. I'm going to attempt to it from now until I stop blogging. Denise actually got me started on it by having it in her blog today. Hopefully I am able to keep this going everyday.

Today's Scripture says this: Your job is to speak out on the things that make for solid doctrine. Guide older men into lives of temperance, dignity, and wisdom, into healthy faith, love, and endurance. Guide older women into lives of reverence so they end up as neither gossips nor drunks, but models of goodness. By looking at them, the younger women will know how to love their husbands and children, 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. Also, guide the young men to live disciplined lives.

(by the way, I'm using BibleGateway.com to get these everyday now...And I'm using The Message version of the Bible. It's a bit easier for me to understand.)

When you read the Scripture found in Titus 2: 2-5, how do you see this playing out in your own life?
I guess this Scripture plays out in my life because I try to be the best person I can be. I try to be the best friend to my bestie that I can be. I also try to be the best sister I can be to my biological sister and to the people who I consider to be my brothers and sisters.
What are your areas of strength? Of weakness?
I think my strength is my consideration to everyone's feelings. I try so hard to put other people before myself so that I'm not being selfish like some people I have met in my 16 years on this Earth. My weakness would probably have to be that I procrastinate and I am lazy. I hate doing work when I'm not doing anything, so instead of getting my work done before it's required to be done, I wait until the last minute to do the work.
If you could set some sort of goal in relation to this Scripture, what would it be?
My goal is to take initiative in things that will change my life. Like taking initiative in robotics or in confimation class.

Where your strength is considering other's feelings, that is my weakness sometimes. I can be so selfish! I am constantly trying to so better!

Thanks for sharing!
