Better a dry crust with peace and quiet
than a house full of feasting, with strife.
The next time you are put into a position of quality -vs- quantity... remember this verse.
I can sympathise with both of these:
- When Daniela and I got married, we did not have much. By the grace of God we were not lacking much, but we certainly did not have a house full of feasting. Life was simple and we were content.
- I have also been in homes where there was abundance... but no joy.
One of the things Scripture does It brings things into perspective.
So you have to ask yourself... would I rather have it all without joy or less with greater joy.
Think on these things.
