Consider Your Ways

Haggai 1:7-9 – Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Consider your ways! Go up to the mountains and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified,” says the Lord. “You looked for much, but indeed it came to little; and when you brought it home, I blew it away. Why?” says the Lord of hosts. “Because of My house that is in ruins, while every one of you runs to his own house.

I recently talked at my church about tithing. More specifically, I talked about why God needs us to tithe. No, He doesn’t need our money since all is His, but He does need to know He can count on us. When we tithe, we are letting God know that we are ready, willing and available to be used by Him.

In today’s scripture we read, ““You looked for much, but indeed it came to little; and when you brought it home, I blew it away. Why?” says the Lord of hosts. “Because of My house that is in ruins, while every one of you runs to his own house.” One of the reasons that God blesses us is so we can be a blessing to others. Whether it be with our time, skills and, yes, money, the Lord expects us to be willing to give back to Him and those around us. The Lord never blesses us so that the blessing can stop wth us. If your macchiato means more to you than your Messiah, “consider your ways”.

I pray for blessing today for you on your Journey!
