Psalms 102-104; Titus 3


Tom's Sometimes Wacky Desert Journey

Titus 3:1-3 Remind them to be under the control of magistrates and authorities, to be obedient, to be open to every good enterprise. They are to slander no one, to be peaceable, considerate, exercising all graciousness toward everyone. For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, deluded, slaves to various desires and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful ourselves and hating one another.

Once again Paul lays out a template of virtuous Christian behavior, that the evening news quickly reveals is poorly followed by many if not most today.  As G. K. Chesterton wrote, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried.” (Chapter 5, What’s Wrong With the World, 1910)
