Read Psalm 127 today

This is another psalm of ascents, a psalm to be read, recited, or sung by pilgrims as they climbed from the lower altitude of the Jordan River Valley to the much higher altitude of Jerusalem. They would follow this path three times each year, as they came for the annual feasts and celebrations.
This psalm is a reminder that the things that matter, the things that last, come from God. We are capable of making many things, but most of them will not outlive us. Our ability to make long lasting things is limited. Yet the things of God endure. Are there things in your life on which you are expending great effort and energy that will produce no lasting result? The psalmist was reminding the people to align their lives with God. Jesus made the same point in John15 when He was talking with His disciples. How might these words inform our lives today?
Psalm 127:1-2 NLT
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.
John 15:5 NLT
“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.
