Are You a Contentious Woman? pt. 1

“The wisdom of Proverbs is undisputed. Short, pithy phrases. Memorable lines suitable for plaques and sweatshirts and coffee mugs. We like to quote Proverbs, even unbelievers can be heard tossing them about quite freely, but do we recognize the power and authority and enormous value of these teachings? I doubt it.


  • It is better to live in a corner of a roof, then in a house shared with a contentious woman.”
    Proverbs 21:9
  • “It is better to live in a desert land, then with a contentious and vexing woman.”
    Proverbs 21:19
  • “It is better to live in a corner of the roof then in a house shared with a contentious woman.”
    Proverbs 25:24
  • “A constant dripping on a day of steady rain and a contentious woman are alike. He who would restrain her restrains the wind, and grasps oil with his right hand.”
    Proverbs 27:15
  • “The woman of folly is boisterous. She is naïve, and knows nothing.”
    Proverbs 9:13
  • “So is a beautiful woman who lacks discretion.”
    Proverbs 11:22

Too often, we dismiss the brief admonitions of Proverbs as old fashioned or even as too simplistic, searching instead for some flashy, complex kind of psycho scripture that will get at the crux of our immediate concerns.

But what if I were to tell you that Proverbs 21:9 is the crux, the very center of many marital problems, career crashes, relationship disasters, and family tensions? What if our attitudes and behaviors are causing more problems for us than solving them?

Now before you dismiss me as a fundamentalist teacher who is going to place blame or a redundant storyteller who is going to warn you to be submissive to your husband……wait just a minute.

My message is a fresh one. My vision is one of clear, Biblical insight into the freedom that God offers to women who choose to be responsible for their own behavior and to escape the burdens and tensions and pure misery that come from being a contentious woman.
