Day 169

by Rev Joel Yong

Proverbs 21:9
It is better to live in a corner of the housetop than in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife.

This verse seems hilarious but it is relief to live in less than ideal housing- if you are a man who has to endure quarrel after quarrel!

What makes a home?
It is surely more than 4 walls and a roof.
It is the relationships between the people who inhabit the dwelling. It must keep people coming home and NOT keep them from coming home!

I think singles, married couples and parents/kids can all contemplate this verse today.
“Do I make living on a rooftop a more appetizing option for my spouse/kids/parents?”

If so- what can I change this day?
You can’t change another person anyway … so why not let change begin with you?

After all TD Jakes once said “If you always do what you have always done, you will always be where you have always been!”
