A fool and a fight
Proverb 20 vs 3 is one that every married woman needs to learn and take to heart.
It is to a man's (persons) honour (or benefit) to avoid strife (conflict/ fight), but a fool is quick to quarrel.
It is a fact: Men come from Mars and Woman come from Venus. Last night I forgot that Martians really, and I mean REALLY do not understand woman at all, and that trying to talk to them over a situation of the heart from a Venusian point of view can often land up in a quarrel, which is not the best thing to have before bed time.
You see, I often forget to take my pretty Venusian glasses off and put on Martian glasses so I can see things through a Martians point of view. I also forgot that Martians don't like to talk when they are about to go to sleep.
After the quarrel, which meant that I could not sleep,I realised that it is better to sit on my feelings (which I later realised were feelings of insecurity) and talk them over with God, then to try just blurt out what is on your mind to a Martian.
This brings me to the proverb I read this morning. Woman are very quick to talk about what is on their mind. There is nothing wrong with that, but when its matters of the heart or marriage, it is best to think over things very carefully, weigh up everything and then, when the timings right, not as you are about to hop into bed, decide if you need to have have a chat about it.
Joyce Meyer calls it, the " battlefield of the mind", and she is 100% correct. And its a constant battle. We need to renew our minds daily, meditate on what is good, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or admirable think about such things.(Phil. 4:8)
Its time for me to log off now, but I just want to ask you what is going on in your mind? Is it filled with peace, or anxiety and fear? Let me know!
