“Thus saith the LORD of Hosts: Consider your ways” (Haggai 1:7).
How long has it been since you have read in the book of Haggai? Do you know what his name means? It actually means “My Feast.” He was the first prophetic voice to cry out to the people after the return of the Babylonian exile. His passion was for the people to complete the rebuilding of the Temple. Fifteen years had lapsed and still no temple. Ringing true to the purpose of the LORD of Hosts, Haggai fearlessly and with great passion called on the people to “Consider your ways.” For them, it was to get with it and rebuild the temple. They listened and took Haggai’s preaching to heart. I wonder if there are any of “our ways” that we should be considering?
For today: Are there areas of procrastination in our lives that Haggai would proclaim, “Consider your ways” or “Get with it, folks!”?
