Psalm 127

“Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain” (1).

The builder and the watchman must still do their parts.

The husband and father must still do his part.

The wife and mother must still do her part.

With the Lord.

Or the building and the watching will be in vain.

The Lord will be faithful in that which corresponds to Him.

Will I?

I haven’t been, always. I regret that. My heart breaks over that. And over those affected by my failure.

But all is not lost!

The question now is, Will I be faithful from this point forward?

Because I can redeem what’s left of my stewardship!

With the Lord.

So help me, God.

PS: This morning’s computer wallpaper is one I’ve decided not to post to the Web. It is an old scanned photo of our three youngest children (I couldn’t find one quickly of all five children) with this piece of verse 4: “as arrows are in the hands of a mighty man.” Young parents, form your arrows well and aim them carefully!

Surely you could add something...
