Peeling Potatoes in Vain

 


This morning, during my quiet time, I read Psalm 127. It goes a little like this: 

" Unless the Lord builds the house,
    the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
    the guards stand watch in vain.
In vain you rise early
    and stay up late,
toiling for food to eat—
    for he grants sleep to those he loves."        


I thought it was so appropriate, especially with this week being the biggest fundraiser of the year--the Nobles Chapel Baptist Church BBQ Extravaganza! Chase and I are so excited to be participating in this fundraiser, and it's going to be SO fun! However, as I hear all the goings-on, and as Chase and I get caught up in the busyness ourselves, I find myself forgetting why I'm doing this--and more importantly, for Whom I'm doing this.

Maybe we at Nobles Chapel could change the Psalm to say, "Unless the Lord chops the pork, the choppers labor in vain. Unless the Lord peels and cooks the potatoes, the cooks peel in vain. In vain, we rise early and stay up late, toiling for BBQ to sale and funds to be raised--but the Lord grants sleep to those he loves."

As we all prepare and work our hardest this week, I challenge each and every one of us, including myself, to remember that if God is not in this, then our labor is in vain. Remember the calling that we have to serve God and to serve this community, and how this BBQ provides the funding to make that happen. Remember that this is ministry. It is mission. It is gospel. Unless the Lord peels the potatoes, the potatoes are peeled in vain.
