Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it;

Psalm 127:1a

My wife and I enjoy the show “Holmes Makes It Right” on HGTV. If you haven’t seen it, the show stars Mike Holmes, a veteran contractor and home inspector, who helps homeowners fix major issues with their properties.


On many episodes, Mike runs into even greater difficulties than expected. Invariably, it turns out an unqualified person did electrical or plumbing work. The work was not done to code and has been a hazard, hidden inside walls or under floors for years. “Just one spark (or leak),” says a scowling Mike, “and the whole house could have been ruined.”

God has a reality show as well. It’s called, “Unless the Lord Builds the House.” On the show, God, the veteran creator and life inspector helps people fix major issues with their lives. Invariably, His clients find more personal problems than expected. The Lord, however, is not surprised. The work was not done to Biblical code and has been a hazard, hidden inside hearts and minds for years. “Just one prayer,” says a smiling creator, “and your whole house can be saved.”

If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!

Jesus (Luke 11:13)
