The Priority of Worshipping God (Haggai 1)

All Christians struggle with the more subtle sins of ingratitude, apathy, and sloth when it comes to the worship of God. For the Jewish people in the first chapter of Haggai, this manifested itself in their indifference to rebuild the temple of the Lord. As a result, the Lord rebuked of their false priorities in idolizing their own affairs, but then he graciously revived them again in true worship, and promised to again be in their midst.
