31 Days To A Wiser Marriage: Day 21

To Do: Read Proverbs 21

Focus Point: Proverbs 21:9 & 19

This is the 3rd time the Lord is warning against the quarrelsome wife. I know we already discussed this topic but the Lord saw fit to warn us yet again.

Verse 9 says that it is better to live alone in the corner of an attic than with a quarrelsome wife in a lovely home. That is a huge statement. I take this statement as a warning because we know that in Genesis, the Lord said to Adam that it was not good for him to be alone. But if he is better off alone than with a quarrelsome wife, that should tell you something.

Check out Verse 19

This one says it’s better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome, complaining wife. So not only is it better to be alone in the corner of an attic, it is also better to live in the desert alone, than with this kind of woman. We learned from Proverbs 19 that this type of woman is as annoying as constant dripping.

Remember that God created us as a help mate. We are the solution and not the problem. Let us not be quarrelsome, quick to complain and tear down our homes but continue to build them up!

Affirmation of the Day:

I have peace in my marriage and in my home!
