Proverb a Day: Day 25

Read Proverbs 25

Proverbs 25 is rich with wisdom about choosing your words carefully. This fall, Robert and I will be celebrating 15 years of marriage. I wish I had applied this verse more during the early years of our marriage. I think it would have made some challenging days a little more bearable and not as quarrelsome.

Every time I re-read this verse, I always get convicted … do my words drive my husband away so much that he would want to live on the corner of a roof? I think Robert would be the first to admit that he would never want to climb any roofs (!) but I’m pretty sure that there were days he wanted to. Ouch. I intentionally picked this picture because this house has a pretty steep roof and for a wife to drive her husband away to it, would take some pretty persistent nagging. Thank you, God, for a point well made.
