Be His Peace

I love the following proverb, because it expresses a very simple, yet beautiful truth for every woman seeking to have a heavenly marriage:
“Be a man's peace and he will run to you.
Be his war and he will run from you.”
The Bible echos this very sentiment in Proverbs 21:9 where it states, “Better to dwell in a corner of a housetop, than in a house shared with a contentious woman.”
And in 1 Peter 3:4, women are exhorted to adorn themselves with a quiet and gentle spirit, which pleases our Lord very much 🕊
The Amplified version of the Bible puts it this way: “but let it be [the inner beauty of] the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, [one that is calm and self-controlled, not overanxious, but serene and spiritually mature] which is very precious in the sight of God.”
Dear sisters, as our men go out into an increasingly hostile world, let us be their havens of peace - women with ready smiles, kind hearts, and welcoming arms ♥️
