Beware of Wife???

I was in Hobby Lobby the other day getting a few items for a class that I'm teaching at our homeschool group when this sign caught my eye.

At first I chuckled at the sentiment, but then I caught myself.  When I thought about it, I realized how really not funny this is.  I don't want my husband to "beware" of me.  I want him to feel like he can tell me anything without fearing my reaction. 

Several verses started flooding my mind of what kind of wife God's word calls me to be and what I should/should not do as a wife.

Proverbs 31: 10-12
A wife of noble character who can find?

    She is worth far more than rubies.
 Her husband has full confidence in her
    and lacks nothing of value.
She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.

Proverbs 19:13 A quarrelsome wife is like the constant dripping of a leaky roof.

Proverbs 21:9 Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.

Proverbs 21:19 Better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome and nagging wife.

Proverbs 27:15 A quarrelsome wife is like the dripping of a leaky roof in a rainstorm . . .

Those are just a few.  The Bible warns against being a wife whose husband would need this Beware of Wife sign.  The sign may be cute, but it won't be hanging in  my house.  I want to have a relationship with my husband so that he would want a sign that says "Blessed By My Wife."

  1. I like, "She brings him good, not harm . . ." Hadn't read that before. Thanks for sharing.
