Day 103 – A Nagging Spouse
15A nagging wife is like water going drip-drip-drip on a rainy day. 16How can you keep her quiet? Have you ever tried to stop the wind or ever tried to hold a handful of oil? Proverbs 27:15-16 (GNT)
15-16 A nagging spouse is like the drip, drip, drip of a leaky faucet; you can’t turn it off, and you can’t get away from it. Proverbs 27:15-16 (MSG)
Nagging spouses are difficult to deal with. They are a nuisance, finding fault in everything and everyone; and yet, they are an integral part of the home you can’t do without! They are usually complaining or showing sudden impatient irritation, especially over some trifling annoyance. If you are this nagging person, calm down, pray about it, and ask God to help you. You will need to learn to bring up the issue of your annoyance for discussion in a positive way. You do this in order to create a positive atmosphere in the environment you are in – at home or even in the larger community. The thing I’ve notice here is that, only you can help yourself! You might even be wondering “how come ‘they’ don’t notice the problem? It’s plain to see!”
As you read this, do not point to anyone else you think it refers to; just consider how it affects you and learn from this wisdom. When nobody is seeing your point, calm down, pray about the issue and develop an attitude that will help both you and others to live in harmony, while you maintain the truth you know. I hope this helps you. If you want peace in your home calm down and stop nagging. May God give you wisdom in Jesus’ name. Amen.
