It is better to live in a corner of the housetop than in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife.

Proverbs 21:9

The very best of marriages will have issues that couples continue to work on so that it will endure over time. However, if there’s a quarrelsome wife who continues to trust more in her ability to argue her point than to trust in God—it will be a miserable experience for everyone who lives in that home.

Even if a quarrelsome wife and mother gets her way—in the end, she will lose. She will lose the trust of her family. She will lose the adoration of her husband and she will lose the respect of her children. Eventually, her family will tire of the arguing and give up pursuing a closer relationship with her. Her children will potentially fall on the either the spectrum of being just like her or they will wilt from controversy of any kind.

A quarrelsome wife and mother can learn humility through the Spirit of God. If she learns to heed the voice of the Spirit and pay attention to her heart conviction, there remains hope for the family. It won’t be easy to discipline herself to speak less and listen more; however, the investment of this spiritual discipline will bring her an increased respect and love from her family.

Even if her children are grown and her marriage has soured—she has hope for renewal through Christ Jesus. With sincere confession and repentance to God and her family, the Lord can bring healing and restoration. There’s no need to continue to argue, fuss, or fight because she will understand the power of prayer on her behalf. Her faith and trust in God will sustain through the difficult days of marriage and children.


Dear Lord, I want to be a better wife and mother to my children. Show me how to be slow to speak, quick to hear, and slow to anger. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
