Like Living Stones

If the Lord does not build a house, in vain do its builders labor.
(cf. Psalm 127)

The Scriptures often present God as the builder who is constructing a heavenly city out of “living stones.” The “stones” are His children, adopted and loved by Jesus Christ, the first-born Son of God’s house and its foundation stone. All is vanity says the Psalmist, that is if you are not letting God build your home. Essentially we are all homeless, especially those who try to go about life on their own steam – on their own efforts by forgetting God, ignoring prayer and pursuing self-interests.

Unless the LORD builds the house,
its builders labor in vain.
Unless the LORD watches over the city,
the watchmen stand guard in vain.

In vain you rise early
and stay up late,
toiling for food to eat—
for he grants sleep to those he loves.
Psalm 127:1-2
