Prov 14:1 The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down. (NIV)

I have not always been a wise woman to be sure. I feel that in the past I have used my own hands to tear down my house (my marriage in particular). I feel that God has taught me so much and has done so much in my life and marriage that I think I am moving towards the wise woman category. I want to always be sensitive to the Holy Spirit's leading to build my house God's way. I am so blessed to have such a godly, loving husband and two great sons who love the Lord and have been saved since they were 4 years old. I am rich beyond measure! Thank you God!

It's so easy to tear down, much easier than to build up. I wonder why it is always easier to do the wrong thing than the right? This reminds me of a Bible study I did once on a woman's influence and how powerful it can be. Note many of the O.T. kings, and the effect that their mother and/or wife had on them. You can look up the scriptures throughout the O.T. and see the influence of the women. It is truly amazing. Our influence with our spouses and children is incredibly powerful. I need to constantly ask the Lord for much wisdom in this area. Thanks for the reminder.
