Ordering Life According to Wisdom of God
Hag 1:5-9, “The LORD Almighty says “Give careful thought to your ways. You have planted much, but have harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it.” This is what The LORD Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways. Go up into the mountains and bring down timber and build the house, so that I may take pleasure in it and be honored,” says the LORD. “You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why?” declares the LORD Almighty. “Because of my house, which remains a ruin, while each of you is busy with his own house.” (NIV) The instructions were clear: “Give careful thought to your priorities. Don’t decide your day according to your problems or your feelings or your circumstances. Order your life according to my wisdom and honor.” He was telling them to think differently so they could change their world.
