127:3 Children - The chief of these blessings. Heritage - Only from God's blessing, even as an inheritance is not the fruit of a man's own labour, but the gift of God.

    I think it's beautiful, I love the book of Psalms....David was a man after God's own heart, would that we could all be like David, and yes we need to quiet our souls sometimes and rest, be still and know that he is God of everything and in control

    I have often wondered about this chapter of Psalms. It's like they couldn't sing unto the Lord in presence of the enemy.

    Such a Blessed Psalm,gives me great joy everytime I read it.It tells us according to God's word to rejoice at all times.To make a joyful noise ,whenever you read it or hear the word of God.To tell everyone of His everlasting Love for us,it's not only for now but forever more. Amen


    Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross for me.

    This verse shows to me that material things are nothing, unless you have Jehovah God's approval. For places of worship in particular, there is no sense in making grand and lavish churches/ temples. Build it modestly and humbly. The important thing is the quality of worship. Good quality worship = quality Christians = making God happy
