A foolish son is destruction to his father, and the contentions of a wife are a constant dripping. Proverbs 19:13
I think it is interesting that a foolish son and a contentious wife are both mentioned in this verse as detrimental to the husband. A mother has a great impact on her children and her husband and sometimes I think we forget. By being intentional every day and pouring God’s love into our family, it allows God to work in our hearts as well as the hearts of our husband and children.
It’s not about controlling the people around us, as tempting as it can be sometimes, it’s about looking to the Lord, loving our family, and building relationships.
It’s OK of we fail. It’s OK if our children and spouse fails. We’re all going to fall down. It’s important our family has our love, support and encouragement when things go south. We should be a safe place when the people we love the most have a bad day or act stupid. Nagging and being contentious should be thrown out with yesterdays trash whether it’s toward our husband or our children. If my words offend you, don’t mind me, I’m just talking to myself!
If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing. If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.
Without love we are contributing to the destruction of our family. Our children will be foolish and our husbands will be bitter. And without God in our lives, we can not love.
Seek the Lord. Ask Him for wisdom. Pray for encouragement and for answers. God will make a way for you to be the very best for your family.
Health and Wellness Tip
Many of us know that antibiotics kill the good bacteria in our gut. But not too many people know that without the good bacteria, fungus will grow stronger and line the colon, prevent the nutrients from our food from being absorbed and will take our immune system hostage! YUCK!
This in turn causes so many diseases and health and weight issues so common today. Gut balance is the root system of our health. We all need healing in our digestive system and everyone needs a good probiotic!
~ Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables
~ Add chopped veggies to all of your meals, like sauces, soups, beans etc.
