Insights on Today's Reading
Haggai 1 - This prophet was living when Ezra came back to rebuild the Temple. The Jews had become discouraged and distracted from the task and Haggai preached to get their priorities back in order. He told them they would remain frustrated with a lack of food and money while they sought to work on their own homes and not on God's house. He encouraged them by reminding them of God's presence, verse 13.
Haggai 2 - Haggai encouraged the leaders of the Jews to "...be strong...and work..." verse 4, because the Lord was with them. In recognition of the leaders' response, Haggai assured them that God would bless them and they would no longer be lacking in anything they needed, verses 15-19.
