Tega Cay Baptist Family and Friends,
“Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘Consider your ways.’” Haggai 1:7
The people of Haggai’s day were neglecting the house of God. Their attention was diverted to other tasks while God was being deserted. The prophet Haggai urgently called the Jews to “consider your ways”. When we pause to consider our ways, we may find that we are only half-heartedly worshipping God. We tend to replace God with our personal preferences. Our pursuits of material possessions consumes our finances. My desire for __________ (you fill in the blank) leaves only leftovers available for God’s use. The attitude of our hearts can sadly become “Lord, I’ll serve You…unless something else comes along.” Let’s stop, consider our ways, and ask ourselves, “Am I presenting my life to God as a living sacrifice or do I serve Him only when I have a little extra time?”
- Lord, help me worship You with my life by serving You and giving to You before serving myself.
In Christ Alone,
