“Our Builder, Our Reward “
Please read Ps 127 A song of ascents. Of Solomon.
1 Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain. 2 In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat — for he grants sleep to those he loves. 3 Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him. 4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one’s youth. 5 Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.
How cool would this be?
Someone asks who built your house?
Instead of giving a contractor name, we say the Lord built our house.
Now some might think that to be a smart-alecky comment. But for the believer, this should be the answer.
How many of us look at children as a reward from God. Perhaps if we did, there would not be so much child abuse.
We serve an amazing Lord God. His ways are not always our ways, but they are perfect ways.
Have a tremendous day in the Lord.
Be Blessed, Be a Blessing; Amen
