Today’s Reading – Haggai 1-2
Now therefore thus saith Jehovah of hosts: Consider your ways. Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes. Thus saith Jehovah of hosts: Consider your ways. (Haggai 1:5-7 ASV)
Consider your ways. A simple statement that can have a large effect. The prophet Haggai’s mesage was not a fiery sermon of repentance. But instead a probing statement. Things seem to be going well but there is never enough and no satisfaction in anything they do.
Application to me – Do I consider my ways? What is God trying to tell me through the circumstances and experiences in my life? God’s voice is sometimes heard in our lives in different ways.
