On the corner of a roof…

Do you happen to know what Proverbs 25:24 says?  Well, it’s a bit convicting for us wives, but I think it’s a good reminder for us today—so here it goes, “Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife. OUCH!  Are you a quarrelsome wife?  Another translation says a contentious wife…  The Hebrew word means strife—argumentative….It causes me to ask myself…am I a nagging wife—are you?  Ok, I don’t like this question either, but if I’m honest about it, there are times when I nag my husband about what he didn’t do that day, or something he did do that frustrated me.  Can you relate?  By nature, it seems we focus on what’s wrong with someone, instead of what’s right with them.  And let’s face it, our lives are hectic and when we get frustrated about things we take it out on the ones we love the most.  Sometimes our husbands get the brunt of our bad mood.  This verse certainly convicts me as a wife and the Lord has a thing to say to me and you about being a Godly wife.  We are called to love, not nag.  We are called to forgive and not hold grudges; we are called to speak words that bring life, not words that tear down.  Let’s take this verse in Proverbs to heart and ask God to help us be the women of virtue we are called to be.    Thanks for reading today!
