Unless the Lord...

On the Road

In our discussion of the road of life we’re on with God, we come to Psalm 127 that talks about the importance of work and how to do it right. You can work your fingers to the bone – and may be praised and rewarded down here, only to find that it was all in vain…because it was all on your own. For the psalmist, that is a weak faith and a person full of pride – because God isn’t trusted in the process. As Christians do jobs and tasks assigned to us in what the world calls “work”, we learn to pay attention to and practice what God is doing in love, mercy, justice, healing, helping, liberating, and encouraging. Work is important. YOUR work is important. But God’s work should always be in the center. Everything else is peripheral.

Scripture References: Psalms 127:1-5

From Series: "On the Road"

The Bible begins with a journey. “By faith Abraham…set out for a place that he was going to receive as an inheritance. He went out, even though he did not know where he was going. By faith he stayed as a foreigner in the land of promise, living in tent…he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.” (Hebrews 11:8–10, CSB) Abraham never found the place for which his heart longed and his soul yearned while he was alive. Life is a journey. Each oasis we find in the desert ultimately fails to satisfy. We live in tents…but the city we desire remains just out of reach. We’ll going to look at the Psalms in order to investigate what we need to reach that city.
