Building or Plucking?

It's no uncommon situation. Not understanding most of the sounds meeting my ears* my mind begins to zone out. Realizing I could at least read something, I open my Bible to Proverbs 14. It's a loaded chapter, but having read the last verse, my mind goes back to verse one.

"Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands."

I knew there was more to it than the building of physical structures. Woman have a special ability to produce words, and in those words is power. They're often little thought of, yet by them our homes can be built up or torn to pieces. It's not usually such a good idea to speak our minds. However, by carefully thinking of our thoughts and words before allowing them to escape our lips we may determine the destiny of the members of our home.

It's the difference between a beautiful home and a collection of torn up hearts and lives.

There is beauty all around,
When there’s love at home;
There is joy in every sound,
When there’s love at home;
Peace and plenty here abide,
Smiling sweet on every side,
Time doth softly, sweetly glide,
When there’s love at home.

*I am speaking of our school worships that are usually only in the Karen language.
