Thoughts on Psalm 127

Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep. (Psalm 127:1, 2 ESV)

A timely reminder, as things get busy again. As plans and actions are being discussed for the next “phase” in our family’s adventure together. As the fiscal year is up and running.

This would be a great memory verse. I’ll do that.

You were clarifying something with God on the way to the station right? Well then, this part, I’ll just put this here. You know what it is.

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. (Psalm 127:3-5 ESV)
