Proverbs Blog-Along: Day 17

Yay, these are my thoughts on the verses that most stood out to me. The ones I've selected can be applied to friendships, family and relationships. I think they are definitely apt for marriages too.

9. Love prospers when a fault is forgiven, but dwelling on it separates close friends.
14. Starting a quarrel is like opening a floodgate, so stop before a dispute breaks out.

19.Anyone who loves to quarrel loves sin; anyone who trusts in high walls invites disaster.

Truthfully, in our marriage, because I can be dramatic, sometimes I tend to blow up tiny issues and this can cause a disagreement or even lead up to an argument. I think that with time, I've gotten better and try to let things go before I start getting overly upset. But there's still room for improvement, and I'm glad I got a reminder today from this reading.

Have a pretty rest of the day :)

    1. Hi. I've been going through Proverbs, a chapter each day. So if it's Day 17, then it's chapter 17. The verse numbers are posted at the start of each one.

      :)

  2. The one that stood out for me is (19) any one that loves quarrel loves sin. Dats deep. I have to remember that next time I get angry.
    Why does your bible sound so much simpler than mine. What version is yours pls?

    1. That's a good verse too! For this post, I used New Living Translation. I typically switch between NLT, CEV and MSG.
