April 3 - Bye Bye to Bickering

Better to live on a corner of a roof
than share a house with a
quarrelsome wife.
Proverbs 25:25 

This proverb rings true on so many levels. Ponder the depth of this verse for a moment. Think of the impact and relevance it has in your own life and marriage. A quarrelsome wife has not only the power and ability to make her husband leave his home but he might think it better to live on the roof than to live with her. Living in the cold and exposing himself to the elements on top of a hard roof top is better than being in the same room as his cranky wife. The husband and father is the backbone to every family; the leader, the spiritual guide. His place is not on the roof forced there by an angry wife. Has this ever been you? Be honest with yourself. I know I am guilty! Personally it breaks my heart and brings me to my knees in prayer when I realize I am a thorn in my husband's side. Our husbands do so much for us everyday, we should shower them with thanks and appreciation. 

What is something you can do today to improve your attitude toward your husband? How can you show him that you appreciate his hard work? Don't just think it, do it!

Dear Heavenly Father, please forgive me of my sins and shortsightedness. O Lord, it is not my desire to be argumentative. I do not enjoy quarreling with my husband. O Father, please give me the strength and wisdom to change my heart, my actions, and my mind. Father I want to align my thoughts and actions according to Your will. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Thank you for this post! I am so blessed to see other women who are unapologetic in obeying God's Word.

The world says, "So, am I just supposed to be his slave? I just have to do whatever he says with a smile on my face?" They make it sound like such an awful thing.

But once we commit to doing what God has commanded, we see that it isn't slavery at all! It's dying to self, putting your spouse above yourself, and loving him as God loves us.

There is such blessing that comes from being a merry wife!
