Psalm 127- A Solid House

Unless the house is built solid, and
for the right reasons, the work is in vain.
When the right thing is done at the right time,
it endures like a house built on a good foundation.
When a nation is governed justly and wisely,
it is safe from all manner of danger.
When you do what you can each day with due diligence,
you sleep deeply at night, trusting God for the rest.
Attend well to the next generation.
The children are God’s gift to us,
and their good upbringing our gift to God.
