Verse of the Day: 'Unless the Lord Builds'

By the Web Editors 05-20-2013
Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord guards the city, the guard keeps watch in vain. It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for [God] gives sleep to [God's] beloved. - Psalm 127:1-2 + Sign up to receive our social justice verse of the day via e-mail
