Proverbs 17:1

Better is a dry morsel with quiet
than a house full of feasting with strife.

Proverbs 17:1 ESV

This verse tests our worldview. When the goal in life is to have it all (or much), strife in the home may be considered part of the price of getting much. This verse says it is better to have less and have quiet than to have much and strife. Depending on a person’s worldview, having too little may be the cause of stress.

Two questions: 1. How much stuff is enough? 2. What would you trade for peace in the home?
