How to be an Idiot: Love Strife with Your Wife

How to be an Idiot

Marriage is the greatest blessing and the greatest struggle. When conflict arises, remember the words of Solomon in Proverbs. 17:14: "He who restrains his words has wisdom". Always abandon the quarrel before it escalates. By loving our spouse unconditionally, we create a secure home for our children and ensure they learn about their heavenly Father who loves them unconditionally.

About 'How to be an Idiot'

The ancient Greeks had a word for it - "idios" - someone consumed with his own interests and opinions. It's the origin of the English word "idiot," someone we regard today as lacking wisdom or good judgment. And, interestingly enough, the Bible has a lot to say about idiots, either painting vivid portraits of individuals relying on their own reasoning or laying out specific warnings about the danger of pursuing our own instincts and desires when they run contrary to Gods Word. In this 12-part series Todd Wagner helps us recognize our innate tendencies to reject wisdom and provides practical insight for living blessed, purposeful lives.
