Wesley's Notes for Titus 2:10


2:10 Showing all good fidelity - Soft, obliging faithfulness That they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour - More than St. Paul says of kings. How he raises the lowness of his subject! So may they, the lowness of their condition.

Tit 2:10 Not purloining. Men robbed of liberty and labor have always been under temptation to steal. Good fidelity. Faithfulness in duty which will secure the master's confidence. That they may adorn the doctrine of God. The virtues of a Christian servant would commend Christianity to the master. As a matter of fact we know that many masters were converted by their servants.
