A Foolish Woman Destroys Her Home By...





1. Complaining and murmuring

2. Being discontent

3. Being disrespectful to her husband (in thought and actions)

4. Being lazy

5. Allowing wordly thoughts to dominate her life and decision making

6. Not submitting to her husband

7. Not obeying God in all areas of her life

8. Trying to dominate her husband (pridefully thinking she knows better than him)

9. Not seeking and listening to godly counsel

10. And most importantly, not putting God first in her life.

Is this you?

These are just a few examples of how quickly we fall into the path of evil.

Lord, please help us to be better wives and to repent of our sinful, wicked ways!

  16. I believe that many woman often struggle with the Dr. Jekyl/Mr. Hyde
    syndrome when it comes to our homes. We so desire to build up God glorifying homes and do what we can to have such but with out own sin nature we can quickly tear down our hard work. That is why it is so important to keep close to God and His Word. Thank God for the forgiveness of patient husbands and children, don't you agree?

    Many blessings...
