A Godly Young Man
“Likewise, exhort the young men to be sober-minded, in all things show yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you.”
Young Ladies, this is the kind of man you should desire for a husband. Young Men, this is the way you should strive to live.
Ladies, it says plainly right here how a godly young man is to live. He should be a man striving to live soberly. He should be setting a pattern of good works. His doctrine and speech should be sound, which means unwavering. It should be full of integrity and reverence, and without corruptness.
A man whose doctrine is not soundly biblical is not a man you want to marry. How can he lead his family if he is unsure or wavering as to what is true? He must be a man who is solidly grounded in the word of God. He should speak the word with integrity and reverence. If he is man who scoffs or mocks God’s Word, then he doesn’t really reverence the Word. Don’t fall for him.
Young Men, these verses describe how your life should be. Live up to it by God’s grace. Read God’s Word daily. If you are not reading His Word daily, then how can you have solid doctrine? Sound doctrine comes from studying God’s Word daily. Your way of living should put your opponents to shame. Rise up in this world to be a leader of sound doctrine and speech. Be an example of good works to those watching you. Be the godly man that every godly girl wants for a husband.
