Conditioned by Truth
As we have seen in Hag.1:5-9, Judah was set-up to cower under pressure. We can understand why they shrunk back. They had been captives for generations. We can live under hereditary curses and generational outlooks on life that “set us up” to suffer loss financially or physically or relationally simply because that is the only experience we have known. We can be programmed for defeat and have mindsets that keep us prisoner to the same beliefs, appetites, reactions and choices of prior generations. If that is the case, we are likely to spend our lives merely surviving, not winning, not increasing, not taking any spoils. If we examine our lives, we might discover that is why we survive instead of advance. Have we like Judah been conditioned by our experiences instead of the Truth?
