A Peaceful Home

"It is better to live in a corner of the roof 
Than in a house shared with a contentious woman."
Proverbs 25:24

Solomon must have had a tough time with his wives. But maybe part of his trouble was the fact that he had multiple wives in the first place. And as one Bible commentator noted, we haven't heard anything from Solomon's wives about how he was to live with on a bad day. Chances are they'd have plenty to say. Nevertheless, this is a good reminder to both husbands and wives to live in harmony. Nothing is worse than living with a spouse who is constantly looking for a fight. The Apostle Paul wrote: "If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men." (Romans 12:18) This isn't just for men, it's for women too. Let's all make sure we're building a peaceful home.
