Before we go to Psalm 127:1 let me share something. There is something in man that is fascinating. Man can build and has build superstructures like bridges,skyscrapers, coliseums, churches,cathedrals, bunkers, tunnels, cities, etc. Mesmerized I went to our city libraryand borrowed about building structures. Still enchanted I wanted to have my own copy of the books I borrowed, but the prices of books could add up, so I looked for used books in the internet. In a few months I was able to collect my own small library.
Being a Christian , I also read the Bible regularly. Soon seems competition for my time is building up , my time and space for the Bible and my focus on building stuffs. On my research for building, comes also finding why buildings fall.
Then while I was reading my Bible, my mind started to wander , stealing my time to focus on building. Our God is a Jealous God. He will not allow competition so He reminded me of Psalm 127:1.
Psalm 127:1 Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.
Question : What is the lesson here ? Does that mean, men should not build ?No, man can still build but let us not forget the LORD.
