Proverbs 17 – Peaceful dried-out bread

Better a dry crust with peace and quiet
than a house full of feasting, with strife.

Proverbs 17:1 NIV

Have you ever tried to eat and enjoy a meal when you know the people you eat with are mad at each other or you. Or perhaps you are mad at them. Either way this verse reminds us of the simple truth: a little morsel is better than a feast, depending on the emotional setting it’s eaten in.
