Proverbs 17:1 – My Role

Today’s Reading: 1 Kings 8:1‐66, Acts 7:51‐8:13, Psalm 129:1‐8, Proverbs 17:1

Proverbs 17:1 – Better is a dry morsel with quiet
than a house full of feasting with strife.

There are many different applications that you can take from this Proverb.  In my own words, it is better to be poor and have peace in your home than be rich with conflict in your home.  I grew up reading verses about the home and placing myself in the observer’s role.  However, I have to understand that I am LEADING my home.

Apply: I need to look for ways to lead my home away from strife and to peace.  I must understand that this is more important than gaining wealth for my family.

What are a few things you have done to establish peace in your home?
