Lessons From Haggai For Today 1
Have you ever started doing something God commands you to do but then stopped because you became discouraged? After stopping, then you neglect the work he has commanded you and attend to your own selfish goals justifying your neglect of his will. This is the type of people Haggai the prophet was called not only to rebuke but to encourage to get back to the work they had neglected, building the second temple in Jerusalem which they had neglected for 16 years. In this short book, we see lessons not only for wayward Israel but for us to today that we may beign again to work for the Lord without excuse, setting proper priorities that He may be glorified above all.
