“Thus says the LORD of hosts: Consider your ways. Go up to the hills and bring wood and build the house, that I may take pleasure in it and that I may be glorified, says the LORD.”
Haggai 1:7–8 ESV
Haggai was about 70 when he delivered this message to God’s people.
But over the course of just four months, he reinvigorated Israel to return to God and build his Kingdom instead of their own.
This is absolutely remarkable; especially when we zoom out and look at what the state of Israel was.
