Psalms 127:1

KJV - Except the Lord build thy house, they labor in vain that build it: Except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

NIV - Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stands guard in vain.

The Brown Derby was among the finest restaurants in Gainesville, Florida. Its excellent cuisine, top notch service, and reasonable prices made it a favorite for Mother's Days and birthdays and such. We have many fond memories of the place. Now it is an Islamic "academy." For public relations, they have even opened a free mercy clinic as a statement that "the religion of peace" really doesn't want to enslave us with its devilish and twisted precepts.

Our society is inundated with sinister influences from false religions, advertisements, propaganda, Hollywood filth, racket called music, and political chicanery, just to mention a few. But guess what? All of these things will fail. Man can plot and scheme all he wants, but will find in the end that the truth of God prevails.

David's psalm for Solomon states so clearly that we should always put God first. How many times do we labor in vain? How often do we see evil plans collapse in disaster because the watchman, no matter how vilgilant, could not withstand the mighty hand of God.

Every single day, we see all of the miracles and mercies of God that allow us to lay our heads in peace at night. While David was referring to the Temple Solomon would build, we all have an earthly home to build.
Whether we labor in vain or let God build it through us determines its permanence: schemes stay here and rot away, but the love of Jesus Christ and His mercy is eternal, and what is built there will last forever.
