Psalm 127

Unless the Lord builds a house, the builders' work is useless. Unless the Lord protects a city, sentries do no good. It is senseless for you to works so hard from morning until late at night, fearing you will starve to death; for God wants his loved one to get their proper rest. 

Wow- what an incredible reminder that if God is not part of it, if he is not the one moving your hands, part of your motivation that you are working for NOTHING. How many times have I done that? Worked without the Lord? How many times have I tried to do things my way? 
Forgive me Lord.. this was just a huge reminder that that without the Lord, I do things with an emptiness. 

Children are a gift from God; they are HIS reward. Children born to a young man are like sharp arrows to defend him. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them. That man shall have the help he needs when arguing with his enemies. 

Praise you Lord for giving me this gift a long time ago. My children have always been my gift. But notice that the scripture says they are HIS REWARD. Though often times we view our children as ours, they really do not belong to us. They belong to the LORD! He has given us the most important job, to raise them up, loving, and knowing the LORD!

May this Word embedded itself in your heart today as it has mine!
