A Constant Dripping

Reg Grant on July 31, 2009 in DTS Devotional

Know why we have dripping faucets? It’s because we push them too hard, we wear them out. Like some of us wear out our wives. On a windswept hill in an English country churchyard stands a drab, gray tombstone. The faint etchings read: “Beneath this stone, a lump of clay lies Arabella Young, who, on the twenty-fourth of May, began to hold her tongue.” Proverbs 19:13: “A foolish child is the ruin of his father, and a contentious wife is like a constant dripping.” It’s weird, but sometimes an encouraging word and a gentle touch can fix a dripping faucet.
