Does The Bible Direct Older Women to Guide and Train Younger Women?


From the Spirit-Filled Life Bible, the footnotes for Titus 2:3 says:

"Older women are to assume the responsibilities of their new position in the gospel. These include providing a proper example for the young women and teaching them Christian character and domestic responsibilities, let they bring disgrace on the faith by abusing their newfound freedom."

Under I Timothy 5:11-13 it reads:

Young widows who are able to work should not be cared for by the church. Furthermore, their youthful impulses will incline them to remarriage or may lead to improper behavior, resulting in a marriage without regard to Christ. Such action would lead to discipline because of unfaithfulness to their vow of service. Paul wants to spare them the condemnation that would be incurred by breaking the pledge made when they were placed on the roll to receive support. Young widows who do not work or have responsibilities may succumb to the temptation of filling their idle time by meddling in the affairs of other people."
