Titus 2:7-8

Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.

Insight: Paul sets a high bar for Titus, his spiritual son.  He reminds Titus that both his teaching and way of life were on display for others to see.  Titus' life gave credibility to the message he preached and silenced those who opposed him.

Prayer: God, help my life today to give credibility to what I proclaim about you.  Show me where I need to align my thoughts, speech, and actions more with you.
