A couple days ago a fellow pastor and friend wrote a series of questions he came up with after reading Haggai. Almost all of his questions hit close to home.
These ones hit me the most:
- Is my productivity level not matching up with the work I am putting in because God is disciplining me as a result of prioritizing building my kingdom over God’s?
- Have I put my comfort, pleasure, status, etc. as a higher priority than God and His agenda?
- Do I believe that God is with me because of His faithfulness despite my unfaithfulness?
- How is the gospel shaping me and being the source of restoration in all of these challenges?
