A wise woman builds her house a foolish one tears it down. Do you understand what that means? We have a lot of silly and foolish women who feel Hollywood can tell them or give advice on how to raise their children or maintain their marriage.
Here are some signs of a foolish woman allowing her house to be destroyed:
1. Telling all her business.
2. Degrading her husband to her family.
3. Minding everyone’s business but her own.
4. Not teaching her children about God, Jesus or the Bible.
5. In Competition with her husband.
6. Not recognizing her husband is the head of her house. God will hold him responsible for his mess.
7. Allowing social media, family, and friends to tell her how to run her household.
8. Following a celebrity’s advice on how to treat her marriage or kids.
Foolish women create problems; chaotic woman creates a hostile and dysfunctional environment. Building your home requires more than bricks and cement.
PROVERBS 14:1 BUILDING OR TEARING DOWN THE HOME IS A METAPHOR FOR STRENGTHENING OR WEAKENING ONE’S FAMILY.
A Wise Women Builds Her House
A wise woman building her home knows fulfilling her husband and honoring him in her conduct and conversation will bring glory to the Lord. It would be her honor to help her husband reach his God-given potential according to the Word of the Lord. This supersedes bricks and cement.
A wise woman will take the time to understand what it takes to fulfill him other than sex. Most men feel secure in themselves when they know their wife have full confidence in their decision making process and being the leader in the house. There probably are times when the wife is a little nervous about decisions her husband makes but during the process of building her home she knows how to step into the prayer zone and ask God to guide her husband thoughts and actions. Allow him to lead.
A Foolish Woman Tears Her House Down
A foolish woman who tears their house down will belittle him for his faults tell all her friends their personal troubles and try to control every aspect of their lives. A foolish woman will not allow him to lead her; instead, she will seek advice from ungodly women or a woman who doesn’t have a man and can’t keep a man. Her house is undoubtedly unstable and crumbling brick by brick.
A wise woman building her house sometimes have to be a load lifter. A man who takes care of his family carry a lot on his back. His main concern is his family, and sometimes he needs that load lifter to say is there anything I can do for you. How can I make your day better? A wise woman building her house job is hard. The Bible says beautiful women have a gentle and quiet spirit. There are times when that wise woman might not have a kind and quiet spirit, but God’s Word describes what he feels a beautiful woman is, so she has to allow the Holy Spirit to take control and have its way when her spirit is not feeling so gentle. A wise woman can serve her family well.
A wise woman knows the necessary tools needed to maintain mentally and spiritually to avoid the foolishness of the world. A foolish woman tears her house down by following the ways of the world and allowing her flesh to be fed by foolish people. What type of woman are you?
