So it makes sense that some of the Songs would relate to seeking and trusting the Lord in the daily family life. Psalms 127 and 128 are a pair of the Songs that do indeed teach concerning the family.---Psalms 127 and 128 are a pair. Ps 127 warned of that it was 'vain' -the key word-- to live a life and -build a house- outside of fearing God and walking in His ways. Ps 128 then espouses the 'blessed' -the key word-- life of the one who fears God and walks in His ways. Ps 127 uses the blessing of children as an example of the need to trust God in -building.- Ps 128 uses the blessing of the the whole family as an example of the blessing of a god-fearing life.---Ps 128 reminds us that the simple day-to-day activities and responsibilities are transformed into the greatest blessings of our earthly life, when redeemed by and lived for Christ----I. Blessing of Fearing God -v1--this is foundation--II. Blessing in Work -v2--III. Blessing in Marriage -v3a--IV. Blessing in Children -v3b--V. Blessing in Church -vv4-6-
