MAIN IDEA || God alone is working as the source of our everyday peace, joy and prosperity so we can flourish & rest by applying his wisdom.
CONTINUING THE CONVERSATION:
1. Psalms (122,126-128) inspire us to express our worship and apply God’s wisdom as an everyday life routine. Why do you think that’s such a challenge for us to live this every day?
2. After carefully considering this Psalm, can you think of how it might change the way you worked or rested if you trusted more deeply that God is always at work building all the good things you need?
Psalm 1271 Unless the Lord builds a house, the work of the builders is wasted. Unless the Lord protects a city, guarding it with sentries will do no good. 2 It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones.
3. According to the Psalmist (128), joyful & prosperous people are those who fear the Lord & follow His ways. Are there any examples you’ve experienced where rebelling against God or living selfishly has undermined someone’s joy or prosperity?
