These were short but sweet! 128 talks about families. I'm not so sure I'm like an olive shoot, but the metaphors made me thing.
But 127:1 is one that we often see above doors. Or on building projects. "Unless the Lord builds the house, the labors are in vain."
It always challenges me to pray more. To commit my ways to God instead of my own. How often do you start something without consulting God? How often do you work really hard on something to ask God to bless it, without seeing if it was his idea in the first place?
Too often, if you are anything like me.
God, may we follow your will instead of our own! May we find new ways to love you and to serve you. Build our houses! Amen!
