31 Days of Virtue: Day 25

... 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

I believe in this verse pure refers to sexual purity. In other versions a word often used is chaste which means "refraining from sexual intercourse that is regarded as contrary to morality or religion; virtuous." To be virtuous women, we must be pure; we must be chaste; we must refrain from any immoral sexual relations. These would include premarital sex, polygamy or sexual relations outside of your marriage, homosexuality, and many others. These relationships only lead to harmful consequences. They are dangerous roads which we should not even look down, much less walk down. 

To stay pure we need to keep our eyes on the Lord, not at what looks good in front of us. We need to get this idea of having whatever we want, whenever we want out of our minds. And we must be patient. Anything worth having will take time and effort. Remember you are not alone in this struggle against sin. And because it is a struggle, we need to keep God and His will in the forefront of our minds and nothing else. 

"Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things." Colossians 3:2
