Haggai writes to the Jews who had returned from exile in Babylon. They had made wrong choices and given priority, time, effort and money to building their own houses and neglected the temple. God calls then to carefully consider that the consequence had been poor harvests and high inflation. The great thing is that the people respond and the Lord assures them he is with them as they repent and return to the work of building God’s house. This is full of helpful lessons for us about giving priority to building God’s kingdom and not our own.
