A Home That Will Stand 10.13.20

A Home That Will Stand 10.13.20

Unless the Lord builds the house,
those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the watchman stays awake in vain.
Psalm 127:1.

This is an important reminder that the foundation of every home and country needs to be the Lord. When that foundation is something else, the home and nation will crumble.

Rather than build your home on sports, academics, or even family loyalty, intentionally build your house on the Lord. How? Show that the Lord is first by spending time with Him every day; by giving priority to weekly worship over other things; by having godly conversations; and by making decisions based on Scripture.

When voting we should ask ourselves which candidate will best represent godly values. (We will not all agree but we should be seeking the same thing.) When praying we should lift up our leaders (whether we voted for them or not).

These things may seem trivial but they are foundational. The Lord is our Master and King. That fact must be reflected in our homes and in our land.
