Psalms 127:1 -- On Including the Lord

"Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain."
Psalms 127:1

This is an interesting idea, and I think just interpreting it as our actions being pointless would be inaccurate.  The next verse does say that lots of our actions are vain/pointless, but I think this verse is pointing out why... they are pointless without God, not pointless period.  God is the essential ingredient in all that we do.  Just like baking a cake is utterly pointless if you don't have access to an oven--we need God, or our efforts will indeed be wasted.

Today, as we put effort into whatever we are working on, let's include God in the process.  Let's pray, and ask for his help and guidance.  Let's make sure that we are both on board for whatever goal we are working toward.  If God is not on board, then it would be wise to choose a different goal.  And if he is, then our work and our efforts are not wasted... especially our efforts in gaining God's help.  Everything he does is golden. :)  And everything we work with him to accomplish is worth every effort. :)
