Unless the Lord… – Psalm 127



Ever felt unfulfilled in your work? Or like you were just on a hamster wheel…running hard, but going nowhere?

Psalm 127 shows us a right way and a wrong way to approach our work.

After our little detour last week, we are back to our 8th Psalm in our Songs of Ascent. In this Psalm, Solomon jumps right into the tension of how much is too much when it comes to our work and our effort and God’s intervention. Solomon provides us some warnings and instructions, then shares the ultimate example of what results when we align our work and effort with what God is up to in, around, and through us.
