“Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.”

Psalm 127:1

This is my favorite bible quote because it emphasizes the crucial role of the divine forces in building a strong and harmonious household.

A home that lacks spiritual backbone may find it hard to resolve conflicts and all the work we put in to make our home a solid and happy one may be put in vain if we don’t have the solid grip in our faith.

Deep satisfaction and connection between family members are achieved whenever we lean on something bigger than who we are and that is God and His mighty presence.
