Unless the Lord builds the house those who build it labor in vain. –PSALM 127:1
There are two aspects to our spiritual journey. There is the work we choose to do and there is the grace of God to help us. The psalmist reminds us of this second element. We are often such doers that we forget to ask God to aid us. The Lord longs to support us as we build that spiritual home.
We will be aware this day that our Christmas welcome to Jesus depends on both our soul work and on God’s grace.
