Titus, Day 1 Readings

Picking Good Leaders    

Today's reading is the beginning of the letter to Titus, which provides a vision of what exemplary Christians look like.  From the outset, Titus is encouraged to pick congregational leaders who conform to high moral standards of the time, who have blameless characters and understand Christian teaching well.  Such leaders are necessary because there are countless other people who are bad leaders, giving bad teaching and providing awful personal examples of faith.

Read Titus 1:1-16  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
