The Minor Prophets
Haggai: Establishing Priorities
Haggai spoke to the Israelites that had returned after 70 years of captivity.
Nothing was done to rebuild the house of God and the people have become apathetic and complacent.
Without the Temple of God, there won’t be the worship of God. And without the worship of God, the people are left without a spiritual compass.
There is something here for us to think about: We always seem to find the time for the things we really care about.
At its core, the real issue is not about time; it is an issue of priorities.
If we try to go for these without God, we can never be fulfilled.
Seek the Blesser and you’ll have the blessings. Seek the blessings (things of this world) and you may miss the Blesser.
Don’t be too concerned about the looks, the number of people, or the size of the church. Be concerned rather with the Glory of God.
We live for the audience of One. In everything we do, we glorify our heavenly Father!
