Quarrelsome wife.

“How bad am I to be married to?” I asked Ron this morning as we headed to the neighborhood yard sale. A bi-annual event, I find lots of treasure for my business. However, my honey must put up with small furniture throughout our house, and God knows what else I find.

“You’re not that bad,” Ron replied. 

Thank God. Quarrelsome wives make life miserable. Nagging drives anyone crazy. Even if husbands give wives reasons to complain, we must remember that they must live with us, too. And only one perfect person walked the earth, Jesus.

As a wife, work on not nagging. Try not complaining for a day and see if you struggle to keep quiet. Practice an attitude of gratitude, looking for ways to thank your spouse for the things he does.

After Ron took me around the yard sale, I took him to breakfast to say thanks. One little act of appreciation goes a long way in a marriage.

Lord, forgive us for nagging our spouses. Please help us have attitudes of gratitude towards our mates. Help us easily find things to thank them for daily, appreciating all they do for us. IJNIP. Amen
