Psalm 127

“Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.” Our work is not secular, unspiritual, detached from our faith. It is, to the contrary, inherently bound up in it. And unless the Lord blesses our work, we labor in vain. And so, as the Psalmist says, we must always strive to see our work–whatever kind it is–as part and parcel of our labor and service to the Lord.
