- How did the Jews of Haggai’s day order their Priorities?
What was the consequence?
And what was the Lord’s command?
What lesson did God wish them to learn?
Is there a present-day application? Cf. Matt. 6:33.
- How had the people failed to live up to the purpose for which they had been allowed to return?
Cf. Ezra 1:2-4. Contrast their first beginnings with the conditions described by Haggai.
Is this at all your experience?
Cf. Rev. 2:4. What happened once they obeyed God’s voice?
Note. Verse 1. ‘The sixth month’: corresponding to our August-September.
