This sentence is taken from Martha Peace's The Excellent Wife. The context of this sentence is found in the chapter called God's Provision: Resources for the Wife's Protection. It directly refers to a wife making a biblical appeal. I am currently doing a Bible study with a couple of gals using this book. I don't want to comment directly on this subject since I have not read this part of the book yet. I'll comment after I've finished the book though! I will say that so far, the book has proven helpful to me. It is full of things that I already know but it has caused me to stop and really ponder how I can be "the excellent wife" to my husband. This book answers that question very simply by quoting tons of Scripture that refer to our job as wives.
I guess you're wondering why I'm telling you this, right? I should have mentioned that first! Well, I saw this meme over at Corrie's and I wanted to play along. If you'd like to play along, please do. Here are the rules:
1. Grab the book closest to you.
2. Open it to page 161.
3. Find the fifth full sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence to your blog.
*Don't search around for the coolest book you have, use the one that is really next to you.*
I’ll leave the tagging to you…play if you want and let me know if you do,so I can come read yours.
