Contentious Wife

A couple of nights prior we were getting a charge out of our dinner around the kitchen table. To captivate the youngsters in discussion, I like to ask irregular inquiries. We do this consistently, and their answers typically make us snicker. This night, nonetheless, my group, headed by my most seasoned, would just yell their daddy's recognitions and let me know precisely how they discovered me needing.

Mom simply shouts at every one of us day."

Mother is the meanest."

"Mom is the naughtiest. She battles with Daddy, and he simply stays calm."
I need to concede that on this event I exited the table when it wasn't excessively observable, went to my room, and weeped loud enough for the whole neighborhood to hear! I am happy they think their father is wonderful–he is! What pestered me was reality in what they said. I do get irate and lose quietness route more than I'd like to concede as I attempt to get them to finish their school work. I do on occasion rage or vent to my spouse, and he truly does generally simply tune in.

The petulant woman–all five times she is said.

A few individuals have let me know of late that they read my web journal and think the amount fun it must be at my home. Yes, we chuckle a considerable measure and we do have a fabulous time, yet I am not the ideal mother or the ideal housewife. I am, notwithstanding, unsatisfied and discontent with my disappointments, yet I likewise have trust that my Savior is not completed with me.

A Contentious Woman

Judges 14:16 And Samson's wife wept before him, and said, Thou dost but hate me, and lovest me not: thou hast put forth a riddle unto the children of my people, and hast not told it me. And he said unto her, Behold, I have not told it my father or my mother, and shall I tell it thee?

17 And she wept before him the seven days, while their feast lasted: and it came to pass on the seventh day, that he told her, because she lay sore upon him [NLT: because of her persistent nagging]: and she told the riddle to the children of her people.

18 And the men of the city said unto him on the seventh day before the sun went down, what is sweeter than honey? And what is stronger than a lion? and he said unto them, If ye had not plowed with my heifer, ye had not found out my riddle.

19 And the Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he went down to Ashkelon, and slew thirty men of them, and took their spoil, and gave change of garments unto them which expounded the riddle. And his anger was kindled, and he went up to his father's house.

20 But Samson's wife was given to his companion, whom he had used as his friend.

Judges 16:13 And Delilah said unto Samson, Hitherto thou hast mocked me, and told me lies: tell me wherewith thou mightest be bound. And he said unto her, if thou weavest the seven locks of my head with the web.

14 And she fastened it with the pin, and said unto him, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awaked out of his sleep, and went away with the pin of the beam, and with the web.

15 And she said unto him, how canst thou say, I love thee, when thine heart is not with me? Thou hast mocked me these three times, and hast not told me wherein thy great strength lieth.

16 And it came to pass, when she pressed [NKJV: pestered; NLT: nagged] him daily with her words, and urged him, so that his soul was vexed unto death;

17 That he told her all his heart, and said unto her, There hath not come a razor upon mine head; for I have been a Nazarite unto God from my mother's womb: if I be shaven, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man.

Proverbs 19:13 A foolish son is the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping [NLT: a nagging wife annoys like a constant dripping].

Proverbs 21:9 It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house.

Proverbs 21:19 It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.

Proverbs 25:24 It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman and in a wide house.

Proverbs 27:15 A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman [NLT: nagging wife] are alike.
