Psalm 127

Chapter Summary

Daily, practical gifts from God

Solomon wrote this one; it must have been after he learned some of his hard life lessons. List some of the daily, ordinary gifts God gives in this psalm. Are there any you are lacking? Do you ever wear yourself out trying to get these gifts yourself rather than trusting God to bless your work and bring true prosperity?
