“Is it right for you to be living in fancy houses while the Temple is still in ruins?” Haggai, chapter 1 traces the flow of conversation between God’s people who think the time has not come to rebuild the temple and God who sees their opinion flowing from their desire to hoard wealth and riches for themselves. Our assessments and God’s are often different. Are there areas in your life that you might see things differently than God? What about our church? Our country? Let us see this world as though we were looking through your eyes O Lord.
