God: House Builder and Night Watchman
Consider this interesting word from the Bible: " Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. In vain you rise up early and stay up late toiling for food to eat--for he grants sleep to those he loves." (Psalm 127:1-2, NIV) So, what does that mean? Do you find this word to be comforting, troubling, encouraging...or just plain confusing? Or all of the above? As you walk through this Thanksgiving week, I invite you to read these words each day and to consider what they might mean. And then, this Sunday, we'll try to figure it out together. And then we'll enjoy a community meal together!
