Patience and Soft Words

Proverbs 25:15 
By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, 
and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.

The picture presented by the world is a marriage filled with screaming matches - 
a constant struggle for my way, my right, my comfort ... .
The world suggests to women that submission is "becoming a doormat."
It is easy to adopt that thinking into a Christian marriage.

It is not logical to think that you will always agree with your spouse.
The biblical way to disagree is not with screaming matches,
with arguments,
with punishment,
with manipulation.

Are you in a difficult situation?
Are you in a hard marriage?
Is there a point where you do not agree with your husband?

Solomon explains the path to be taken ...
patience and soft words.

Teaching contrary to my flesh, and yours, I'm sure.
I want my way NOW!
I want relief NOW!
I want to be understood!

Patience and Soft Words

There is no guarantee on the timing.
It may be days, weeks or even years.

You (the wife) are not the leader and decision maker in the home.

You don't agree with your leader - the prince in your kingdom?
Practice Patience and Soft Words
