Quoting Quiverfull: Woman’s Pride Destroys Marriage?

quotingquiverfullby Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies – Marriage Destroyer

Editor’s note: Another ‘marriage destroyer’ in Quiverfull according to Nancy Campbell. Pride. Funny that her interpretation of pride is being stubborn and unyielding. That’s not how I understand pride. It might be the clues that someone is prideful, but it’s not pride at all. Is pride in marriage really that bad? Everyone has standards they uphold, even Nancy.

One of the biggest stumbling blocks in a marriage relationship is pride. Pride reveals itself when we are stubborn and not willing to yield. It rears its ugly head when we stay on our “high perch” or keep our “high look” and are not prepared to humble ourselves.

Conversely, one of the greatest building tools in establishing a happy and sweet marriage is to have a humble and tender heart. We certainly don’t have this in our own flesh, but as we yield to the Holy Spirit, He works it in our hearts. And you will have the favor of God upon you. When you have God’s favor in your marriage, you will enjoy all kinds of wonderful blessings.

God continually reminds us that He hates the pride. Psalm 101:5 (HCSB) says: “I cannot tolerate anyone with haughty eyes or an arrogant heart”. The CEB translation says: “I can’t stomach anyone who has proud eyes or an arrogant heart.”

God runs from pride! We won’t experience His presence anywhere near us when we keep our proud heart (James 4:6 and 1 Peter 5:5).
But who does God want to dwell with? Those who have “a contrite and humble spirit” (Isaiah 57:15). When we follow the example of Jesus and humble ourselves, God comes right into our marriage with His mighty presence–melting stubbornness, softening hardness, and turning our hearts to one another.
