Proverbs 19:13


A foolish son is destruction to his father, And the contentions of a wife are a constant dripping.





A “foolish son” and a “nagging wife” both make life miserable for a man. A foolish son “destroys his father,” in the sense that he robs him of pleasure, support, and family continuity . The wife who continually contends with her husband turns his home, where he expects to

find tranquility, into a place of turmoil so that he can find no rest. King Manasseh proved to be a foolish son, and Michal, Saul’s daughter, is an example of a contentious wife.


A positive and continuous relationship to one’s father has been found to be associated with a good self-concept, higher self- esteem, higher self-confidence in personal and social interaction, higher moral maturity, reduced rates of unwed teen pregnancy, greater internal control and higher career aspirations. Fathers who are affectionate, nurturing and actively involved in child-rearing are more likely to have well- adjusted children.
