building the spiritual house

from Magnificat -

"All of us are given a spiritual 'house' to build, to live in, and to hand on to future generations: what will yours look like?"

from Psalm 127:
If the Lord does not build the house,
in vain do its builders labor;
if the Lord does not watch over the city,
in vain does the watchman keep vigil.

In vain is your earlier rising,
your going later to rest,
you who toil for the bread you eat:
when he pours gifts on his beloved while they slumber.

  1. The Psalms are still so relevant and have so much to tell us, even now!
