Obedience and Reverence: Psalm 128

Psalms 128:1 A song of ascents. Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in obedience to him.  

As always – read the whole Psalm)

The Great Procession to Jerusalem is growing ever larger.  The conversation is spiritual yet involves the most basic things of earthly life.  Faithful people expect blessings such as a happy Marriage and the Lord’s provision for every need.  There is the expectation of children and grandchildren.  Above all there is the expectation of peace.  All this depends on God’s grace and our faithfulness.  However, such blessings are not guaranteed!  They are related to prayer and to the  blessing we speak over one another.  For the Christian, family is more than a blood ties, wealth is not in earthly things, long life is not measured in years but in quality. Our family is the Household of God.
