Haggai 1

Its time!

The remains of the Israelites have been allowed to return to Jerusalem and started to do OK, but Haggai the prophet is stirred up to speak out about the temple.

You’ve made sure you have nice houses, he says, what about god’s?

I love his picture of wages going into a purse with a hole in it, suggesting that they will never feel like they have enough money to build the temple. Some things never change!

And the people respond. We’re in for a temple building! Its a good chapter about listening to the things that stir you up when you are complacent. You should not ignore that voice.

I’m in a sweeter spot than I was a year ago. What does god want of me?
