A Thought for the Day

Proverbs 17:14
The beginning of strife is like releasing water;
Therefore stop contention before a quarrel starts.

Have you ever seen a dam where the water is just released? The water rushes so quickly as if unstoppable. As wives, when we do not hold our tongue, we open that dam of strife. So many times the things that bother us can just be "let go" and we can move on with our day. Instead, so often we choose to open the dam allowing the enemy in to do destruction like an out of control flood of dissension. Women control the mood in the home. Like the saying goes, "If mama ain't happy no one's happy" or something like that. As women, wives, and mothers it is so important for us to hold our tongue and keep the floodwaters of strife contained so we can stop it before it starts.


  1. This is so very true! Thank you so much for stopping by and saying hello, it brightened my day! We are getting ready for our big move and things have been busy around here. Hopefully in a few months I will be back to cruising blogland on a more regular basis! *grin*

  2. Great word! Thanks for sharing! So true.
