Today's reading is the conclusion of the letter to Titus. It summarizes the theme of the middle part of the letter, studied yesterday. In order to be a good Christian, one must be a good person in the eyes of the wider (non-Christian) community. You must not only follow religious rules, but you must obey the laws and customs of the place where you live. A good Christian teacher will insist that people not only learn about Jesus, but live peacefully and honorably among all of their neighbors.
