Are You Contentious Woman?

To be contentious is one who tends to be argumentative, causing controversy, and inclined to quarrel. One of the ways that wives are contentious is by being a nagger. You keep getting on your husband about the same thing over and over. After you have mentioned it once God wants you to stop going to your husband and bring it to Him. In Proverbs 27:15-16 “A quarrelsome wife is like a constant dripping on a rainy day, restraining her is like restraining the wind or grasping oil with the hand,” In other words quarrelsome nagging is a steady stream of unwanted advice. it is a form of torture. People generally nag when they feel that they’re not getting through. However, nagging tends to hinder good communication. So this week I want to encourage you to take the compliments to your husband and your complaints to God.

    Amen to the word of God! This is something that I practice daily because when ever my husband thinks about me throughout the day I don’t ever want him to think of me and turn his nose up because he feels that I nag too much.With the help of God I strive to create an atmosphere full of peace, love and joy at all times especially in our home.
