31 Days of Virtue: Day 24

... to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. Titus 2:5

In other versions of this verse, self-controlled is sometimes read as live wisely, to be sensible, to be discreet, to be chaste, to use good judgement, to be sober-minded. However, all of these revolve around the idea of living right, of having your actions, words, and thoughts under control.

Over-reacting and flying off the wall in rage is not having your actions under control. Gossiping about someone in the beauty shop is not having your words under control. Thinking of ugly things to do or say to a person is not having your thoughts under control. Remember a virtuous woman is someone of moral excellence, goodness, and righteousness. This is what we should be working towards; not the other direction.
