  • The metaphor is derived from the “impress of a die”.
  • As a teacher of the word Titus was called upon to make sure his message was “pure” (“untainted” by error).
  • Dignified translates “semnotes” meaning serious.
  • The word “sound” means “healthy” or “wholesome”.

  • Young men often “sow their wild oats” and then pray for a crop failure!
  • Young men need to hear the importance of building good habits of behavior early in life, of developing self-control in all things, especially in the area of alcohol use, sexuality and temper.

Young men can make an excellent contribution to the cause of Christ.
  • Churches need to encourage younger men to pursue a spiritual life. We need to encourage young men to preach the gospel and to live the holy life.
  • It would be a good idea for churches to become better informed about why young men do not aspire to preach or to serve in leadership roles.
