Psalm 128

1 Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD,
who walks in his ways!
2You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands;
you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you.

3Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house;
your children will be like olive shoots
around your table.
4Behold, thus shall the man be blessed
who fears the LORD.

5The LORD bless you from Zion!
May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
all the days of your life!
6May you see your children’s children!
Peace be upon Israel!

Questions to consider:

  • To you, what does it mean to fear the Lord
  • What are some examples of ways in which God will bless his people?
  • What prosperity do you hope to see for "all the days of your life"?
Possibilities for prayer:

Take some time to think about what the fear of the Lord looks like in your life. Ask God to speak to you about how you can be more reverent in your life. Thank God for the ways that you have been blessed already, and ask that God would reveal to you the ways in which he is continually blessing you, even now.
