Unless the Lord Builds a House (Psalm 127:1-5)David De Bruyn, April 19, 2015
Part of the Psalms series.
A certain worldly wisdom says that we should be neutral about our children's faith. Psalm 127 challenges this notion with direct, purposeful training in righteousness.
|« Robbing God?||None||Carnal or Christ-Centred Salvation »|
1Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. 2It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep. 3Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. 4As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. 5Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. (KJV)
