Under Gods Command

Proverbs 27:15-16 – A quarrelsome wife is like a constant dripping on a rainy day; restraining her is lie restraining the wind or grasping oil with the hand.       

Quarrelsome nagging, a steady stream of unwanted advice, is a form of torture.  People nag because they think they’re not getting through, but nagging hinders communication more than it helps.  When tempted to engage in this destructive habit, stop and examine your motives.  Are you more concerned about yourself-getting your way, being right-than about the person you are pretending to help?  If you are truly concerned about other people, think of a more effective way to get through to them.  Surprise them with words of patience and love, and see what happens.
