A Virtuous Woman: A Nagging Wife is Like a Constant Drip

A virtuous woman is a good wife. She creates an atmosphere of warmth and love in her home.

If you are married and striving to become a virtuous woman, it is important to remember that a husband is not always perfect. He may forget to take out the trash. He might leave his dirty socks on the floor. He may find it too difficult to replace the toilet paper roll. But, is that why you married him?

When you fell in love, you probably never considered whether he would always take out the trash or pick up after himself. Before making a point to criticize your husband or nag him, ask yourself some questions. Will this matter a year from now? Is this worth a confrontation?

Does nagging a husband ever work? It may work in the immediate sense. He may get out of his chair to take out the trash. Over the years, nagging your husband will only bring resentment. The Bible says that a nagging wife is like a constant drip. That means VERY IRRITATING!

If you would appreciate some change in behavior, go to God and pray about it. Donít nag your husband. Ask him nicely Ė once. If he fails to do the request, you might gently remind him a second time. If that does not work, do the chore yourself without grumbling and complaining. Praise him when he does do what you asked. Gush over him. Make him feel good. He might enjoy it so much it becomes a habit!
