September 20 "Consider Your Ways" Haggai 1,2

 Haggai 1:4-6“Is it a time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, while this house lies in ruins? Now, therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways. You have sown much, and harvested little. You eat, but you never have enough; you drink, but you never have your fill. You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm. And he who earns wages does so to put them into a bag with holes.

 “Thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways.  Haggai 1:7

Did they return to God out of duty or devotion? What about my intentions to do what is right. Finding God isn't doing all the right things.  It is being surrendered to our Redeemer. And the intentions of our hearts come out. 

Many good intentions can lie dormant. Consider your own ways---not the ways of others who bother you and trip you up. 

Consider this day!

COME BOLDLY: Timeless Prayers
May we not miss this day!  Your Grace. You are on our side, God. We ask for your help as we consider our ways.
